What Is the European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS)?

The European Travel Information and Authorization System, or ETIAS visa, is an electronically issued authorization to travel to and within the Schengen Area. It is a requirement for all American citizens traveling to Europe for touristic purposes.

It was created to help increase Europe’s security against migrant risks and terrorist threats and to help manage border control.

The ETIAS system gathers information on non-EU citizens who can currently travel to Europe visa-free.
