Visitors to the United Kingdom will be required to receive an electronic authorisation (ETA) prior to arrival, under a new proposal unveiled by the British Home Secretary Priti Patel.  The program will be similiar to the USA Esta scheme.

The system is targeted to be launched in 2024 and this would include all visitors including those from Europe.

The Europe Travel and information authorisation scheme (ETIAS) is expected to be launched in 2022. See below for further information.
