The ETIAS visa waiver is a new pre-travel screening system that aims to improve security and combat illegal immigration and terrorism in the European Union. When it goes live in 2023, the electronic system will be in charge of validating traveler information by using various security databases. Because of this, Argentinean citizens traveling to Europe will need to apply and complete an ETIAS form before entry. Once ETIAS is fully implemented, it will be impossible to enter the Schengen area without possessing an ETIAS visa waiver. The waiver will have a validity period of three years after issuance, and Argentinean nationals in possession of one will be able to enter the Schengen area multiple times during this period. To obtain one, make sure you check the ETIAS requirements for Argentinean citizens. The online application itself won’t take longer than 10 minutes to complete, as all you need is a valid passport. Most people receive their ETIAS approval confirmation within a matter of hours, but issues might delay the authorization. Consider that you may use the ETIAS waiver only for short trips of up to 90 days that have a touristic or business purpose. ETIAS does not allow Argentinean citizens to study or work in the EU – you will need a student or work visa for that reason.
