UK introduces Electronic Travel Authorisation
Travellers to the United Kingdom before or on November 15th will require an electronic authorization, according to the UK Government. Applications for one start on October 25th, 2023.
Those with a visa to the UK, a British or Irish passport, and permission to live and work in the UK will not need an ETA. Similarly, legal residents of Ireland, those who don’t need a visa to enter the UK, and those entering from Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man
You’ll need to apply for the ETA on the UK ETA app, or online on GOV.UK. Travellers can apply on behalf of others.
Each traveller must get their own ETA, including children and babies. Communication about the ETA will return after 3 days, but early communication is also possible. In some cases, additional checks will take longer than 3 days. An ETA will cost £10 per applicant.
Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates are among the countries that require this authorisation.
