Travelling to Europe to get more complicated in 2024 for Australians


From 2024, Australian passport holders will need to apply for a European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS) to visit Europe.

ETIAS is a visa waiver which will allows citizens of some countries, including Australian passport holders, to enter Europe and travel freely.

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, the ETIAS application process will require you to provide your date and place of birth, nationality, home address, parents’ first names, email address and phone number.

It will also ask for your passport details, level of education and current occupation, your travel plans and any criminal convictions, past travels to war or conflict zones and whether you have recently been required to leave any country.

ETIAS are valid for three years and can be applied for via the ETIAS website or mobile application.

The new visa will be introduced as a way to “reduce illegal immigration and beef up security against terrorism.”
