All About the ETIAS Authorisation Austria

The European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS) is poised to begin in late 2022, and becomes obligatory in 2023. When it enters into force, visitors from around 60 countries will be required to apply for authorisation online before travelling to Austria. At Byevisa, we have reviewed all of the official information available to bring you the facts on this new screening system and help you prepare your future travel plans.

Whether you are drawn to Austria for its rich musical history, decadent desserts or awe-inspiring mountains and lakes, you need to get the correct type of travel authorisation before you go.

While some travellers must go through the arduous process of obtaining a traditional visa, if you are a citizen of one of around 60 eligible countries, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia, you can easily apply for the travel pass you need online.

It is called the ETIAS (European Travel Information and Authorisation System) authorisation, and all eligible visitors must apply before their trip in order to gain permission to enter the country.

Read on to find out which nationalities are eligible, what the requirements are, how to apply and more.

Difference Between Austria ETIAS and Austria Visa

Starting in late 2022, all international visitors who travel to Austria need a visa or an ETIAS, except for citizens of the European Union or Schengen Area. The authorisation you need depends on your nationality. You can use our visa checker tool to see which is right for you, or find the list of countries below.

The European Travel Information and Authorisation System is required for visitors who are eligible for the Austria visa waiver program. The ETIAS allows you to visit Austria and other countries in the Schengen Area for up to 90 days in any 180 day period, as long as you are travelling for tourism, business, transit or medical purposes.

It is easy and inexpensive to get the ETIAS pass online with Byevisa, and it is valid for 3 years, so you can use it multiple times.

However, citizens of some countries, including China, Egypt, India and Russia, must go through the more complicated process of applying for a visa through the Austrian Embassy.

You will also need a traditional visa if you want to stay in the country for more than 90 days, or if you’re travelling for reasons not covered by the ETIAS.
