The majority of British tourists should be issued their ETIAS within a few minutes on the electronic system.
However, in some more complicated cases it could take as long as 30 days for an ETIAS to be granted.
The ETIAS visa will be valid for three years or until the tourist’s passport expires at which point they will need to apply and pay again.
ETIAS was designed by the EU to strengthen border control and improve security in the Schengen area.
