British citizens to face €7 fee to enter Schengen Area

The European Commission has announced that as of next year British citizens will have to pay a visa waiver fee to enter Europe’s Schengen Area.

As part of a plan to improve border security for the Schengen Area, the European Commission are introducing the European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS). Set to launch before the end of 2022 and will be used by visa-exempt non-EU nationals (including British citizens)

Those wishing to travel to the Schengen Area will need to fill in an online application form to receive approval. The EU Commission have commented the vast majority of cases (over 95%) will result in automatic approval, and those that aren’t may take up to 30 days to approve.

It will cost €7 for all applicants ages between 18 and 70. The fee however will be a one-off and will be valid for three years and multiple entries into Schengen states.

The new ETIAS will be mandatory condition for entry. Travel documents will be checked by border staff when crossing the EU border.
