Only 62 countries around the world don’t need to request visas to enter Europe, now these countries will have to request an ETIAS. Mexico is among these countries.
If you are eligible, you should be starting you application now!
Is ETIAS a visa?
No. ETIAS is an authorization document that will allow your entry into Europe if you are from a country that doesn’t need a visa for this region. Also, the process between an ETIAS and a visa is much different. On one hand, a visa would require visits to consulates and tons of physical documents. But this is not the case for an ETIAS that only requires an online application from the comfort of your home.
Can I use France ETIAS to visit all of Europe?
You need to be careful about what countries you consider when you ask for all of Europe. ETIAS is valid for the 26 states part of the Schengen agreement, not all countries in the European continent are part of this deal.
On the other hand, if you state France in your application, as the first country you will be visiting, then you must follow through with this statement. If you try to enter another country first, border officers will deny your entry. After this first country, you can travel around to Schengen countries for up to 90 days in a 180-day period.
Don’t forget that your ETIAS will be valid for three consecutive years since its approval.
