How will the Etias System work?

You can apply for an ETIAS directly online. You will be required to hold a valid passport or valid travel document and complete the online registration form with your personal details. You will also be required to provide the Member state of intended first entry and answer a few background and security questions. Once you submit your ETIAS online application and pay the required fees, it will be screened across the ETIAS system database. If your application is approved, you will receive a confirmation along with the ETIAS visa.If your application is denied, you will receive an email explaining the reason for the denial, and you will have the opportunity to appeal.

Revocation or Annulment of ETIAS Travel Authorization

It is possible to have an ETIAS travel authorization revoked. This is true when the conditions for issuing the ETIAS visa are no longer met, or if there are grounds for believing that the travel authorization was fraudulently obtained. The revocation will also apply if you are refused entry at the Member state point of entry or due to a reported lost or stolen travel document. In such cases, the ETIAS revocation or annulment is done by the authorities of the Member State in possession of the evidence that led to the revocation or annulment or by the ETIAS National Unit of the Member State of first entry as declared by the applicant.

An ETIAS may also be annulled or revoked if the automated ETIAS IT system receives an alert. In such cases, the ETIAS system will first check to see if the alert is associated with a valid ETIAS travel authorization. If this is the case, the Member State having created the alert will be responsible for the revocation of the travel authorization.
