Scots face added charge to enter 30 popular holiday destinations – see the full list

UK holidaymakers will face an added charge when visiting 30 popular holiday destinations under new rules.

UK passport holders hoping to visit Schengen States will be treated like any other non-EU country as a result of the Brexit referendum in 2016.

It means Scots travelling to any of the 30 countries will have to apply and pay for electronic travel authorisation.

Once paid for, the visa is expected to last for three years and will allow unlimited travel to EU countries in that time frame.

The ETIAS will cost £6. The EU’s ETIAS website states: “ETIAS will be a largely automated IT system created to identify security, irregular migration or high epidemic risks posed by visa-exempt visitors travelling to the Schengen States, whilst at the same time facilitate crossing borders for the vast majority of travellers who do not pose such risks.

“Non-EU nationals who do not need a visa to travel to the Schengen area will have to apply for a travel authorisation through the ETIAS system prior to their trip.”

The EU says: “After filling in an online application form, the system will conduct checks against EU information systems for borders and security and, in the vast majority of cases, issue a travel authorisation within minutes.

“The ETIAS travel authorisation will be a mandatory pre-condition for entry to the Schengen area. It will be checked together with the travel documents by the border guards when crossing the EU border.”
