Holidaymakers jetting off to certain European countries will be required to apply for a new travel pass later this year.

In fact, Brits may be enjoying their last summer holidays without applying for the new travel authorisation called ETIAS – an abbreviation of European Travel Information and Authorization System.

The rules of travel in Europe are changing in 2024 as ETIAS will be the entry requirement for 30 countries. That means people with citizenship from countries including the UK, US, and Australia will be required to apply for the €7 (£6) pass before embarking on their travels.

What is ETIAS?

ETIAS is a travel authorisation set to begin in 2024 in 30 European countries. It will be valid for three years or until your passport expires – whichever comes first.

With the travel pass linked to your passport, UK nationals will be permitted to travel in the ETIAs countries for up to 90 days within a 180 day period.

The EU website warns travellers they will be refused entry at the border if their passport is not valid for three months after your intended departure from ETIAS countries.

How do you apply for an ETIAS?

Applications will be available online on the official ETIAS website and through a mobile app when the pass comes into effect. The fee will cost €7 (£6).

When will ETIAS begin?

An exact start date has not been named, but the EU guidance already urges travellers to apply for an ETIAS “well in advance”, specifically “before you buy your ticket or book your accommodation”.
