Frequently Asked Questions / FAQs
What is the ETIAS system?
The U.S. visa waiver system is a good example of a functioning model that the ETIAS wishes to imitate. Like the ESTA, the ETIAS asks applicants for basic data as well as any relevant criminal or medical background information in order to have a full picture of who will visit the region.
Another way that the ESTA is similar to the ETIAS is that they are both filled out online. This convenient digital process ensures that applicants get to avoid lengthy appointments in the embassy as well as keeping the operating costs down, which is a factor that affects applicants.
Who can apply for ETIAS authorization?
The system will allow a simpler method of valid travel to citizens of countries who presently do not need a Schengen visa in order to enter the country for short periods. In fact, the number of countries whose citizens do not need a Schengen visa at present is quite large and includes Mexico, the USA and New Zealand among others.
This means that all these people will soon need to apply for an ETIAS to enter Finland, including citizens of Macedonia. Check out the convenient Visa Checker function on the iVisa.com website to learn which other nationalities will have to apply for an ETIAS soon.

You have a couple of options for completing the digital form. Once the system is operating at full swing you will be able to apply on the official ETIAS website.

Does the authorization have an expiration date?
Once you apply for a Finland ETIAS for citizens of Macedonia, a standard ETIAS authorization will be valid for multiple entries to the Schengen zone for a maximum of three years, or until the date of passport expiry (whichever comes first). It’s also possible that your ETIAS is valid for only the length of your trip, depending on the outcome of your assessment.
Although the document may be valid for years, it is only permitted for stays of up to 90 days in a 180 day period. Overstaying beyond this time is likely to result in the ETIAS being cancelled if the conditions of its validity are broken.
Can I travel with animals?
