Europe is suffering an increase in illegal immigration which has put pressure to better control the European borders. For this reason, the European Union is implementing a new system to gather more information about non-EU travelers, this is known as ETIAS.
Citizens of Costa Rica are now being requested to get an ETIAS if they are thinking about visiting Greece or any other country in the Schengen area in Europe. ETIAS is a mandatory requirement and Costa Rica will need to comply with this.
