Who needs ETIAS?
All there is to know before traveling to the Schengen area
Traveling to the EU from Argentina
The European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS) will launch by 2023. With this new system, the citizens of the 60 countries currently enjoying a visa-free regime with the EU (including Argentina) will be required to apply for an ETIAS visa waiver before traveling to a Schengen area country. Effectively, in 2023 Argentineans will need an ETIAS to travel to Europe for various short-stay purposes, including tourism, business, health, and more.
An approved ETIAS will have a validity period of three years. Here on our website, you can find all the relevant information to begin your application, fill out your ETIAS form, and receive your confirmation. After that, you are all set. As the process is exclusively online, you will only need a passport, a valid email address, and an active credit or debit card with sufficient funds to pay the fee associated with the ETIAS application. Usually, applications don’t take more than 10 minutes to complete, and an acceptance or rejection gets emailed within 24 hours. Note that border officials may ask for supporting documentation if they deem such information inaccurate.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic has shaken many of the regulations within Schengen countries, ETIAS will constitute yet another step to increase the security of European citizens in terms of health standards.

Also, consider that you will need to fill out an online health check form if you plan to travel to Europe from Argentina. After completing the e-form, you’ll be given a code that must be shown to border officials for authorization at the port of entry.
