¿Como Etias?

No, your high school Spanish is not failing you. This is about Etias (not ‎¿Cómo estás?) And, even if you have no designs to visit Spain or don’t wish to learn one of the most widely spoken languages on the planet, this info will be useful for you if you travel, at least in Europe. If the latter is you, then learning more about Etias may just save your holiday.

So, what is the Etias scheme? ETIAS travel authorisation is an entry requirement for visa-exempt nationals travelling to any of these 30 European countries. It is linked to a traveller’s passport. It is valid for up to three years or until the passport expires, whichever comes first. With a valid ETIAS travel authorisation, you can enter the territory of these European countries as often as you want for short-term stays – normally for up to 90 days in any 180-day period. However, it does not guarantee entry. When you arrive, a border guard will ask to see your passport and other documents and verify that you meet the entry conditions.

You clearly don’t want to find yourself stranded or inconveniences next time you wish to travel through Europe, do you? So, you’d better refresh yourself sooner than later. Read more here courtesy of The European Union itself. Click here to prepare. Plan ahead!
