Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
WHAT IS THE ETIAS AND DO I NEED IT?
The European Travel and Information Authorisation System or ETIAS is a new system, which has been established with the purpose of keeping track of all visitors who enter the Schengen Zone. It scans, updates, and oversees all applicants thus allowing non-EU tourists to visit these countries for tourist, business, medical, and transit reasons.
Currently, there are 60+ countries whose citizens need to apply for an ETIAS. New Zealand is one of these countries and hence must get an ETIAS to visit Austria.

HOW DO I APPLY FOR THE AUSTRIAN ETIAS?
Once you are sure you need the ETIAS, pop open a Lemon & Paeroa and let us guide you through the 3 quick steps that’ll get done before your fizzy does.
- One, fill out the application and pick the procedure time you most prefer (more on this below).
- Two, confirm the details you entered in step one and use your credit/debit card or your Paypal account to pay the fees and seal the deal.
- Three, upload the required documents related to your nationality/passport and hit submit!
Once you receive your document, the ETIAS will be valid for 3 years or until the end of the validity of the documents used in the application, whichever comes first.
WHAT DOCS DO I NEED TO APPLY?
The information needed is pretty generic and is asked only to address security concerns for all tourists. We would advise you to answer all questions honestly and thus avoid any red flags that may lead to a round of manual questioning or decline of your application.
Here’s a list of things you should be prepared with before filling out the application:
- A scan of your passport (to be valid for at least 3 months from the expected date of arrival).
- Photo: if you want, you can use iVisa.com Photos.
- A valid e-mail address.
- Payment: use a debit/credit card or a Paypal account.
