Frequently Asked Questions

Can I go to any EU country with my ETIAS?

Yes, you can but for the right use of the ETIAS authorization, first you must go through the first country you said you would enter in your application. If you were planning to go through Italy, Spain, and France, and you wrote in your application form that you will visit Spain first, then you must go through it before you visit Italy and France. After you enter your first country, you can visit any other country in the Schengen Zone for 90 days.

It is important to know that there are countries in the EU that are not part of the Schengen Zone, and you cannot go to them with the ETIAS authorization.
