The ETA will first be made available to Qatari nationals
The UK government has announced the launch of its new Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA) scheme, which will replace the Electronic Visa Waiver (EVW) for GCC and Jordanian nationals.
The ETA is now open for applications from Qatari nationals, who will require an ETA for visiting the UK on and after 15 November 2023.
The ETA will roll out in other GCC markets in February 2024.
The ETA is an improvement on the EVW, costing £10 and permitting multiple journeys to the UK over two years or until the holder’s passport expires, whichever is sooner.
