United Kingdom Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) for Citizens of Estonia
What is a UK ETA?
A UK ETA is an electronic travel authorization that allows citizens of Estonia to travel to the United Kingdom for short-term visits such as tourism, business, or transit purposes. The UK ETA is valid for up to 6 months and allows multiple entries into the country.
The UK ETA is an easy and convenient way for Estonian citizens to apply for entry into the United Kingdom. It eliminates the need to apply for a visa at a British embassy or consulate, and it can be applied for online in just a few minutes using UK eVisa.
Requirements for a UK ETA
In order to be eligible for a UK ETA, Estonian citizens must meet certain requirements. Applicants must have a valid passport from Estonia that is valid for at least 6 months after their intended date of departure from the United Kingdom. They must also have proof of sufficient funds to cover their stay in the country, as well as proof of accommodation.
Applicants must also have no criminal record and must not pose any security risk to the United Kingdom. Additionally, they must not have any contagious diseases or medical conditions that could affect public health in the country.
The application process for a UK ETA is simple and straightforward. Applicants must fill out an online application form with their personal information, passport details, and travel plans. They must also upload copies of their passport and other supporting documents such as proof of accommodation and proof of funds.
Once the application has been submitted, it will be processed within 24 hours. Applicants will receive an email notification when their application has been approved or denied. If approved, they will receive their UK ETA electronically via email.
The validity period of a UK ETA depends on the purpose of travel and can range from 1 month up to 6 months. The maximum stay allowed in the United Kingdom with a single entry visa is 180 days per year.
It is important to note that the validity period begins on the date of issue and not on the date of arrival in the United Kingdom.
