The European Union confirmed that, by 2024, tourists from countries that do not require a visa to enter the Old Continent—Argentina is on that list—will have to process a special travel permit called Etias.
This is a system that will replace the traditional currency of the passport and which in English has the abbreviation European Travel Information and Authorization System (European System of Information and Travel Authorization).
Etias requirements for argentina
At least until Atias becomes operational and becomes part of the requirements that Argentina needs to enter Europe. To successfully complete the Etiyas application, tourists must meet these requirements.
- Must have a passport with at least three months validity from the date of arrival in Europe.
- Have a credit or debit card with you to pay the request.
- Have an email address to receive the paperwork approval document.
Passengers will also need to provide the following information:
- Valid passport details: name, surname, passport number, date of issue, country and expiry date.
- Contact information including address and email.
- Information about your criminal record and your health status.
How long does Etiyas take and how much does it cost?
According to EU officials, this new authorization is processed in the first three business days after it is processed, although in most cases it is approved almost immediately.
The Etiyas costs 7 euros for anyone over the age of 18, while minors and senior citizens over the age of 70 do not pay a fee. It is valid for three years and the initiative is similar to ESTA, the electronic system for travel authorization in the United States.
