Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is an “ETIAS”?
ETIAS (European Travel Information and Authorization System) is a system that authorizes foreign citizens to enter the Schengen Zone thanks to an electronic link in the passport.
The European Commission affirmed that the ETIAS system is quite similar to the U.S. ESTA program. What you should know is that not all travelers will be able to get an ETIAS authorization, as the program is only accessible for citizens of about 62 visa-free nations.
This program was created to have a better track of each applicant to ensure that this person is allowed to enter the Schengen Zone.
How many countries need ETIAS?
As you read before, there are only 62 countries that can apply for ETIAS. These nations are visa-exempt, so they don’t have to apply for a paper visa or something similar unless the traveler decides to live or work long-term. Moldova is one of the 62 countries that can apply for the ETIAS, so if you have a Moldovan passport, then you’ll require to apply for the ETIAS before traveling to Greece.
Don’t forget that the ETIAS can be used only in the countries that belong to the Schengen Area, so it can be used in only 26 countries at the moment.
