The United Kingdom’s Electronic Travel Authorization pilot program is available to nationals of Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
Additional Information: Individuals cannot use a passport issued by one of these countries to apply for an ETA if they are not a national of that country. An ETA will be valid for two years (or to the expiry of the holder’s passport, whichever is sooner) for multiple entries into the U.K. Individuals who are denied an ETA must apply for a Standard Visitor visa, Temporary Work – Creative Worker visa or transit visa.
BAL Analysis: Beginning Feb. 22, nationals of Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates will be required to apply for an ETA before traveling to the U.K. By the end of 2024, an ETA will be required for all visitors who do not need a visa for short stays, including those visiting from European countries, Australia and the United States.
This alert has been provided by the BAL Global Practice Group.
