Are you travelling outside of the European Union? Then you might need a visa, eTA or ESTA. Whether you need it and what type it should be depends on your destination, your nationality and your travel purpose. For many popular destinations, you can apply for the required visa entirely online through this website. You will not have to leave your house. This applies to the following destinations and travel authorisations – the USA: ESTA, Canada: eTA Canada, India: Indian visa, Australia: Australia visa, Vietnam: Vietnam visa, Sri Lanka: Sri Lanka visa, Kenya: Kenya visa, Egypt: Egypt visa, Myanmar: Myanmar visa, Cambodia: Cambodia visa, New Zealand: New Zealand visa, Oman: Oman visa, Tanzania: Tanzania visa, Cuba: Cuba visa and Turkey: Turkey visa.
A visa is an authorisation to enter a country. This destination country can use the visa procedure to screen all incoming travellers, and exclude any unwanted persons. In the past, a visa was always a paper document which was often stamped in the passport at a consulate or embassy. These days, applying for many visas and other travel authorisations can be quickly and easily done online.
An e-visa is an electronic visa. Applying can be done through the digital application form. Sometimes, it is also necessary to upload certain documents, such as a passport scan, passport photo or business card. The immigration services perform a screening based on your information and documents. If everything is in order, your e-visa is generated. You need to print it yourself and take it with you on your trip. This way, you can prove that your application was approved.
Unlike an e-visa, the ESTA (for the USA) and the eTA Canada (for Canada) are not documents but authorisations. Your airline can check based on your passport information whether you possess a valid ESTA or eTA travel authorisation. You therefore do not need to print the confirmation of approval, although a printed confirmation can help speed things up if you are selected for a random check.

Do you have a criminal record? This does not necessarily mean you cannot apply for an ESTA. Only if you have been convicted of a crime that has resulted in serious material damage or serious injury to another person, or damage to a government agency, are you unable to apply for an ESTA. Offences such as traffic offences or (traffic) fines do not prevent you from applying for an ESTA, unless they led to serious material damage or serious injury to another person.
