After the verification of the provided information, you will be given either positive or negative feedback. In rare cases you might have to submit additional documentations or attend an online interview.
ETIAS authorisation will be valid for three years per one passport. You cannot transfer ETIAS from one Biometric Passport to another. If you get a new passport, you will need a new authorisation too.
