Starting in 2025, visa-exempt travelers will be required to complete an ETIAS application prior to boarding any airplane, coach vehicle, or sea carrier for Europe. The ETIAS application requirement includes travelers who will only be transiting in Europe en route to other destinations.
These European Countries require visa-exempt travelers to have an ETIAS travel authorization:
Applications should be submitted at least 2 months prior to departure to guarantee entry.
The authorization is tied to your passport, so no additional documents are required once approved to enter the EU, and is good for 3 years. It allows travelers to remain in the EU up to 90 days within a 180-day period.
