ETIAS Visa for US travelers

Please note:

Starting 2021 U.S. citizens traveling to Europe will need to apply for an ETIAS (European Travel Information and Authorization System) visa waiver, which is the new travel authorization for Europe.

The ETIAS application form can be obtained through a simple online process that will be able to be completed quickly. In the vast majority of cases, an authorization should be given in a matter of minutes. The whole online registration and application process will not require more than 10 minutes per applicant.
