Belgium ETIAS for citizens of the United States of America
4 min read
Updated on May 14, 2024

In the United States of America, people celebrate many monthly celebrations, which include a diversity of parades and festivals. It can be an enviable scene for Europeans if it weren’t because Belgium can compete against this.

Belgium is known for its waffles, beer, and chocolate, but they’re also famous for having the best music festivals, which include surreal folk festivals. If there’s something the locals will enjoy more than anything, it is to prove their gastronomy is terrific. You’ll have to taste everything on offer from their brewed beers to cheese, milk chocolate truffles, beef stews, and don’t forget about the fries.

Fill me in

Many citizens from the United States of America already enjoy these culinary highlights and festivals by traveling to Belgium on the visa-exempt entry conditions applied. To continue these easy trips between continents, soon travelers will be requested to apply for an ETIAS. This is a digital permit for those arriving from Schengen visa-free countries that want to visit for tourism or business purposes.

In the following article, we put together the most important FAQs needed to make sense of the ETIAS, its use, and its benefits for all travelers. There are also insights on how to proceed with the [online application process] through the iVisa.com website.


Why does every citizen of the United States of America need an ETIAS?

As the United States of America is part of the Schengen visa-exempt program, each of its citizens will soon require an ETIAS to enter the Schengen Zone. The online application must be done before traveling. The document ensures that you’ve been through a brief and express pre-screening process and the system has confirmed that you are in no way a threat to the arriving country.

When should I request my Belgium ETIAS?

You may apply for a digital Belgium ETIAS at any time before departing your country. It’s highly recommended to do this at least 96 hours before your trip starts to ensure the application goes through successfully and you have sufficient time to receive the results.

Can I visit Ireland with a Belgium ETIAS?

The ETIAS authorization only allows the traveling holder to visit any of the Schengen states, whether or not they’re part of the European Union. To visit Ireland, you will need to apply for the visa they request for USA citizens.

What is the ETIAS validity for citizens of the United States of America?

An ETIAS holder can have travel authorization for up to 3 years or it could also only be granted only for the extent of your journey. In these 3 years, you can visit the Schengen countries multiple times while making your stay no longer than 90 days.

Can citizens of the United States of America go to Belgium to study with an ETIAS?

No, you may not. The ETIAS is a travel permit for foreigners arriving for business, tourism, leisure, or even medical visits. Their primary condition is to stay in Belgium, and other Schengen countries for no more than 90 days in 180 days so long term study isn’t covered by this.

Can I get an ETIAS in less than 96 hours?

Yes, you can. Fortunately, by applying through the iVisa.com platform, you can request at a specific processing speed for your application to go through, and then you will get the results faster.

  • Super rush processing - receive your ETIAS results in no more than 30 minutes.

2.You must then check that the details included in the first step are correct, and make the online payment.

3.Your third step is answering a poll. You must fill it out and provide any extra information the ETIAS system requests from you. Once finished, click on “Submit”.

That is the end of your application process. You will now need to wait for the Belgium ETIAS results to arrive on your inbox.
