New rules for tourist entry into Europe are expected to take effect in 2023.

The European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS), which has been discussed since 2013 and was approved in 2018, is a new entry authorization system for visitors in European Union (EU) countries that will go into force in 2021. Following many delays, the planned date was shifted from May to November 2023.

To enter the countries in the so-called Schengen Area, citizens from at least 60 countries, including Brazil, must request electronic authorization.

But not all countries that are part of the bloc signed the agreement, maintaining the same rules, for now, for receiving travellers. The Etias will be required for those travelling for tourism – with a stay of up to 90 days in a period of 180 days.

That is, it will take at least 90 days to return to Europe after returning to the nation of origin. It’s worth remembering that nations in which an entrance visa is required will not have access to the electronic form.

Only individuals intending to travel to work or study in Brazil, for example, should submit a particular visa for each occasion.

Etias is not a visa, according to the European Union. Online authorization can be requested, and most must be given promptly and renewed every three years. If your passport expires, you will need to renew it.

The goal of the move is to boost the bloc’s security by validating important information from visa-exempt tourists before they travel to the European Union. Tourists currently only have to go through border control. The immigration officer determines whether to issue entry authorisation based on the documentation supplied.

The filling time will be ten minutes. Requests will be processed automatically, according to the European Parliament. If the algorithm detects an issue, the information will be manually verified, and a judgement must be made within four weeks.. In case of refusal, it must be justified and the applicant will have the right to appeal the decision.

Data and value

Name, date and place of birth, gender, nationality, and passport number should all be requested. There will also be questions on criminal histories and presence in combat zones.

The authorization should cost €7 (about R$40) and can be paid for with a credit or debit card.

Children under the age of 18 and those over the age of 70 will not be required to pay for the authorisation. The information comes from the So Paulo newspaper O Estado.
