British and US travellers to Disneyland Paris to pay €7 ETIAS fee.

British and US travellers to Disneyland Paris will have pay €7.00 per person and pre-register their details in order to enter the European Union from late next year.

The European Travel and Information and Authorisation Scheme (ETIAS) will enable citizens of 63 non-EU countries to visit the EU Schengen area with travel pre-authorisation, rather than a full visa.

The European Commission confirmed in 2018 that, from late 2022, the UK will be part of ETIAS, meaning that Brits aged between 18 and 70 will have to pre-register their details before any trip, as well as pay the €7.00 levy.

The ETIAS system is expected to process the vast majority of applications automatically but in some cases it may take up to 30 days.

If approved, the ETIAS authorisation will be valid for three years or until the expiry date of your passport if earlier.

Once the pre-authorisation has been approved, British passport holders will be allowed to stay in Europe up to 90 days.

ETIAS requirements will be in place for any trip to Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Lithuania, Latvia, San Marino, Estonia, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Italy, Greece, Czech Republic, Malta, Monaco, Liechtenstein, Iceland, Norway, Switzerland, Vatican City, plus the non-Schengen micro-states of Andorra and Monaco.

It is expected the ETIAS visa waiver to enter into operation at the end of 2022, but ETIAS travel authorization will not be mandatory until 2023.

A six month grace period is planned to allow eligible travellers to become familiar with the new system.
