Fees and payment

The ETIAS application fee is € 5, however, travelers under the age of 18 will not need to pay the fee. Debit and credit card payments are accepted.

After payment of the fee, if applicable for applicants over the age of 18, the ETIAS application will be processed and a decision will be obtained within minutes.

Schengen Area Visa

If you are not eligible for ETIAS or if your ETIAS application is refused, you will probably need to apply for a Schengen visa to visit Europe.

If you wish to stay longer in the EU than the time allowed under ETIAS, you will have to move to the corresponding visa category according to the objectives of your stay.
