Beginning Jan. 21, 2021, all Americans looking to travel to a European Schengen-zone country, including France, Italy, Portugal, Spain and others, will need ETIAS (European Travel Information and Authorization System) authorization. This includes minors.
For those who have never had to get a visa, a visa is an endorsement placed within a passport that grants the holder official permission to enter, leave or stay in a country for a specified time period.
The visa is valid for three years and is “multi-entry,” so you don’t need to apply every time you want to visit.
“Completing the online application should not take more than 10 minutes with automatic approval being given in over 95% of cases,” the release said.

The visa website did not list the cost but said payment must be paid in advance online when applying with the traveler’s contact information and passport details. Registration will also include some basic security questions.
The ETIAS is similar to the ESTA, which is what Europeans currently need in order to enter the U.S.
The visa change also applies to Monaco, San Marino and Vatican City.
