There is an increased risk of crime and terror over the globe, and therefore, many countries have developed a security system in order to make the traveling safe and secure. Earlier the US developed the ESTA, and now Europe has developed its own travel safety system named the ETIAS VISA. After proper research and evaluation of the necessary factors, the European embassy decided to launch this high technology system for the easy and safe traveling of people from certain countries. The list of the countries whose citizens can apply for the ETIAS comprises the name of 62 countries, including Australia, Colombia, Bahamas, and many others.

How much do you have to pay?

The ETIAS is a high technology authorization system, though, but it is not going to be a financial burden on you as there are no huge changes for the ETIAS VISA. There is not much but 7 pounds that you will have to pay with the application of the visa authorization, which is not at all high for such high tech and secure verification system. This authorization fee is only for adults over the age of 18 years, and the ones who are not 18 years old yet, will not have to pay any fees.

The validity of the ETIAS

Getting the verification of this authorization system is not such an easy process as it is a high-security system, but when you get the authorization, it is valid for up to 3 years. The validity of your ETIAS VISA can also end when the documents verified in the application lose their validity if it expires before three years. There are certain criteria on the basis of which it will be deiced whether you will get the first period of validity or the second depending on the evaluation of risk and information.
