The ETA scheme will be implemented in a phased manner, on a nationality basis, over the next two years.
It will launch for Qatari nationals from 25 October 2023. From 1 February 2024, the scheme will be introduced for nationals of Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. An ETA will cost £10 per applicant when the scheme opens, will permit multiple journeys and be valid for two years or until the holder’s passport expires – whichever is sooner. The latest factsheet
The Home Office will provide further details of which countries will be rolled out next in due course. A full briefing of who will require an ETA, how to apply, how much it will cost and other information is available on Gov.uk
The Home Office will also be hosting a series of Sector events on the ETA scheme. Events are open to all who wish to attend any session.
