Come 2021, every American will require a Schengen Visa upon entering Europe. An ETIAS waiver will reportedly be a viable easy-to-obtain short-term alternative for travelling tourists and professionals.
— Kent County, DE (October 16, 2019) – With the ETIAS, prospective tourists and professionals looking to travel into Europe need not worry about the upcoming Schengen VISA requirement. The European Travel Information & Authorization System, ETIAS, has today announced that a successful application will see US citizens rewarded with a short-term VISA free permit into the Schengen zone.
While the Schengen zone restriction will not be until January 2021, the ETIAS group are looking to give Americans an early nudge. Business professionals, tourists and just about anyone with the ETIAS pass will be eligible to stay up to 90 days without requiring a visa. Though, the European countries outside the Schengen zone remain VISA-free for Americans, the allure of the Schengen locations will pose as a reason to obtaining the ETIAS pass.
When quizzed about why the ETIAS pass is an option with the Schengen VISA guaranteeing a longer stay, a representative of the agency had this to say, “With the ETIAS, Americans who need less than 90 days in Schengen countries may never need to get a VISA. Obtaining the ETIAS pass is a fast and painless process. Also, acquiring a Schengen VISA is way more expensive than what we are doing with the ETIAS. We are happy to help the country in our own way.”
Notably, Schengen VISAs do not come without plenty of restrictions. Travelers are required to apply directly to the embassy or consulate of any country they intend to visit. Furthermore, the variety of Schengen VISAs reportedly contributes a fair share of complications for many travelers. ETIAS is an electronic system that keeps the record of visitors from countries that do not require a visa to enter Schengen.
It would delight the public to know that application for ETIAS pass is entirely online. Requirements include only a completed ETIAS application and a valid passport. It is stated that approval for the ETIAS will take a minimum of minutes and maximum of four days. If granted, the ETIAS would be valid for three years with a permit to stay up to 90 days
