Be ready for some changes on your upcoming trips to Europe. The EU is planning to implement a new way of tracking who enters and leaves the continent through a new process called the ETIAS. While previously citizens from certain countries would only need to show up in the EU to automatically be under a Schengen Visa. Now we’ll all have to fill out a digital form beforehand. And when you exit and enter the EU they will be able to instantly digitally track how long you have been in the EU.
Remember that if you already have a Schengen visa, you do not need to apply for ETIAS. However, it is advisable to inquire before traveling about this requirement, since the ETIAS travel authorization is a European permit that, in principle, gives access to Schengen countries, but not to all European countries. Moreover, the final decision is in the hands of the border authorities.
If you have any doubts about the new travel authorization to enter the European Union, ETIAS, or about other visa procedures, get in touch with us by booking a quick call. At Intelivisa we will be more than happy to assist you!
