For the time being, these countries’ people can travel to the Schengen area – which includes <a href= »# »>22 EU countries and 4 associate but non-EU members</a> (Iceland, Switzerland, Norway and Liechtenstein) – without requiring a visa, as long as their stay is less than 90 days.

However, the EU has decided to introduce an additional requirement for visitors from 60 visa-free countries (mentioned above) as of January 1, 2021. Travellers from these countries will need to obtain prior authorization from the <a href= »# »>European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS).</a>

The EU says it wants, with this measure, to « <a href= »# »>strengthen security checks on people travelling to the EU without a visa</a> ».
