ETIAS – European ESTA to be Introduced 2023

As this blog gets more views from North America than anywhere else in the world I thought it helpful in advising North American visitors to Europe the latest announcement to impact future travel plans.

The European Union has announced that arrivals from outside the block including UK travellers will need to arrange an ETIAS – European Travel Information and Authorisation.

The visa waiver will be valid for three years and cost €7.00
