Applications for the 2018/19 card are now closed.

The 2019/2020 application process will open the first week of January 2019 and will cover 01 April 2019 to 31 March 2020.  

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. 

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
