Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA)

People travelling to the UK without a visa will be required to get an Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA). This will give you permission to travel to the UK, and it is electronically linked to your passport.

If you’re travelling to Scotland for the first time, we’re on hand to answer all your questions on who is eligible and how to apply for the new ETA scheme.
