Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is an ETIAS?
ETIAS is the European Travel Information and Authorization System. This is the new entry requirement for citizens traveling to Schengen countries that are not required a visa. Canada is among the 62 countries that don’t need a Schengen visa, therefore, citizens of Canada will be required an ETIAS.
The main reason to implement ETIAS is safety. Due to high crime rates and illegal immigration, the EU wants to collect further information from travelers with ETIAS, as this could stop illicit activities.
