What is ETIAS?

ETIAS is designed to strengthen security in the Schengen area for a critical reason, an essential prerequisite for health care and preventing terrorist attacks. Australian citizens planning to travel to Europe will be required to apply for ETIAS. Visa waiver will be launched in Europe by 2023. From 2023, you will be required to apply for an ETIAS visa for business, transit, tourism, or health reasons. The European visa waiver will allow Australian citizens to travel to the Schengen area for a short period, up to 90 days. Australians will travel to the 26 member states of the Schengen area. It includes 22 E.U. member states such as France, Germany, Spain, and Italy and the 4 E.U. Schengen countries: Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland. ETIAS has the full support of the European Union. The E.U. has introduced a new security system to reduce terrorist threats and illegal migration. Australians will be allowed to travel to European countries as soon as the new system takes effect if they own ETIAS.

ETIAS Requirements for CA citizens​

To apply for ETIAS, Australians must meet several requirements:

ETIAS is electronically linked to the travel document, so it is essential that Australians use the same passport when filling out and traveling. This issue is also critical to Australians with dual citizenship.
Because the system will be electronic, Australian travelers will only apply for a passport at the Schengen border checkpoint. However, a printed copy of the visa waiver will not be superfluous if the system has any problems.

For entering the Schengen countries, Australian citizens will need a European visa waiver from 2023. ETIAS will allow Australian citizens to visit Europe for tourism, business, transit, or other purposes.

Australians with ETIAS will stay in Schengen countries for up to 90 days. ETIAS will be valid for three years, and if you have a valid passport, you will be able to enter the Schengen area multiple times. Australian citizens will not be able to stay in Europe for more than 90 days. Also, if your travel document/passport expires, you will have to apply for a new ETIAS visa waiver within three years.

ETIAS can only be used for tourism, business, transit, and healthcare purposes. That will not be a work visa for Australians, and they will not be allowed to work for European companies. If you still start working, the consulate may cancel your ETIAS, preventing you from applying for a certain period. If Australian citizens want to work in Europe, they must have the appropriate permit or work visa. It will depend on the country in which you want to work. Your personal and professional circumstances also determine your authority.

The updated news about the ETIAS for Europe

ETIAS for Australians holding dual citizenship

By the end of 2022, the European Union is launching a European visa waiver program, the analogs of which exist and are very popular in the world. The program's name is ETIAS, which means the European Travel Information and Authorization System, the adoption of which was agreed upon by the European Union.

ETIAS – is a part of the Europe Common Intelligence Agency

ETIAS is an authorization system developed for countries outside the Schengen area for short-term travel to Europe. The main goal of ETIAS is to strengthen border controls, eliminate illegal immigration, and avoid other hazardous threats situations that may occur during international travel. In this way, Europe is trying to protect citizens and tourists from other countries from health and terrorist threats. The European visa waiver is developed by the European Union and will be mandatory for citizens currently using visa-free travel.

ETIAS: What differentiates it from a traditional visa?

Europe introduced a new system to strengthen security and regulate illegal migration. By 2023, AU citizens will have to apply for a European visa waiver to travel to Europe. ETIAS visa waiver  (European Travel Information and Authorization System) is similar to the American ESTA. A Visa waiver is a regular visa permit that allows travelers to enter Europe for a short period, although you will not have to go to the embassy or consulate to get it.
