News Details

The Department of Consular Affairs at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) has explained that the European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS), scheduled to be launched by the European Union (EU) states at the end of this year, is not an alternative to the Schengen visa.

The Department of Consular Affairs stated that the ETIAS system is dedicated solely for visitors exempted from the Schengen visa who travel to the EU states or the Schengen Area, since the system will be dedicated for passengers whose entry to the EU states does not require the Schengen visa.
