Frequently Asked Questions / FAQs
What is an “ETIAS” and why do I need it?
ETIAS (European Travel Information and Authorization System) is an official program that authorizes foreign travelers to visit the Schengen Area due to an electronic document linked to their passports.
The Schengen Agreement Commission declared that the ETIAS system is very similar to the U.S. ESTA system. However, you should remember that not all the foreign travelers will be eligible to receive an ETIAS authorization, as the ETIAS is only available for 62 visa-free nations.
This system was designed to have better control of each traveler to ensure that this person is admitted to enter the Schengen Area.
How many countries require ETIAS authorization?
As you saw in the previous information, only 62 countries can apply for ETIAS authorizations. All of these countries are visa-free, so they don’t need to apply for a paper visa or any similar document unless the traveler wants to live or work long-term. Montenegro is one of the 62 nations that can get an ETIAS, so if you own a Montenegrin passport, then you can apply for the ETIAS.
Just remember that the ETIAS authorization is useful only in the countries that are part of the Schengen Area, so you can use it in only 26 countries by now.
