Visa Process of ETIA
For a traditional visa, approval takes about 14 days after you have paid a visit to the embassy. With ETIAS, however, the approval only takes minutes! The maximum amount of time that your approval can take is no more than four days. Imagine the convenience!
ETIAS saves you time and money, and all you need for that is to be ETIAS eligible. ETIAS works in a total of 61 countries, and you need to be a citizen of any one of them. If you are traveling for below 90 days, then ETIAS is the best option for you. It requires only one application and a passport, while a traditional visa will require complicated processes of interviewing and many documentations.
Benefits of ETIA
The best part is that it saves you time, money, and energies when it comes to traveling. The procedure with ETIAS is 100% online, which means you will not have to go through stateside travel, and no interviews as well!
With the amount of money you will save by cutting the costs of trips to embassy and consulate areas, you can do better things when you go to visit Europe! More time and money for Europe then! There are no embassy or consulate requirements at all, unlike the visa process.
For short business trips, ETIAS is your best bet. However, if you have to stay for longer periods, like for working, getting a job or education, then you would need to go for a visa.
