Tour Guide ID Card

Applications for the 2018/19 card are now open.

Your ID card will be valid from the date of application until the 31st of March of the following year.

Please note Tour Guides can only apply for the ID card if they are contracted to ETOA member companies.

The format and function of the card are unchanged. ETOA members continue to benefit from legal advice relating to tour guiding, and ETOA remains vigorous in its efforts to ensure tour guiding is accorded the support it needs at a European and national level.

To this end, we are pleased to note that the legislative proposal for a revised Professional Qualifications Directive makes significant moves towards removing some of the obstacles faced by tour guides seeking to work in countries where guiding remains a regulated activity. For full details about the ETOA Tour Guide ID cards, please refer to this document.

If the company you work for is a member of ETOA and is not listed on the application form or if you experience any technical issues with the application form, please contact Veronica Caiado at
