Most European countries currently allow Canadians to travel through their borders visa-free

Published on : Thursday, March 14, 2019

With a number of countries having strict visa requirements, most European nations currently allow Canadians to travel through their borders visa-free. All that Canadian travellers require is a passport for travelling.

 

These countries comprise the ‘Schengen Zone’ – 26 European countries that permit visa-free travel for up to 90 days. Founded on June 14, 1985, the system is ideal for short-stay visa conditions and is a boon for tourism.

 

Starting January 1, 2021, Canadians will face some minor red-tape when embarking on their next European adventure.

 

Known as the European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS), the system is completely electronic, keeping a track of visitors from countries who do not need a visa to enter the Schengen Zone. They estimate that 95% of applications, or possibly more, would be approved within minutes.

 

Canadians need to provide a valid passport, email address, and valid credit card or debit card, and a payment of $8 CAD to apply for it.

 

Canadians can simply apply online by answering some security questions and providing information about their travel plans. After a passenger provides the requisite information paying the nominal ETIAS fee, they are expected to receive their approved ETIAS visa waiver via email within 24 hours.
