Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
IS THE ETIAS COMPULSORY TO ENTER ESTONIA?
Yes! From 2022 onwards, this electronic travel authorization will be a compulsory immigration system used to address potential security threats throughout the borders of the EU.
The European Travel Information and Authorization System or ETIAS, is a visa waiver scheme and provides an early indication as to whether or not an EU visa-exempt traveler will be allowed into the Schengen zone. Citizens of Mauritius must get this ETIAS authorization before entering the EU for business or leisure purposes.
IS THE ETIAS VALID ACROSS THE ENTIRE EU?
Nope. Having an ETIAS does not guarantee permission to enter the EU as this decision is made by the national border security guards via a screening process at the port of entry.
However, the ETIAS application does make it easier by conducting prior checks in order to pre-determine any issues as much as possible. This pre-verification process includes a check of your prior criminal record, work experience, visits to war-ridden countries etc.
In addition, it’s worth remembering that not all of the EU countries are in the Schengen zone such as destinations like Ireland.
HOW LONG IS THE AUTHORISATION VALID FOR?
Once issued, the ETIAS authorization will allow you to stay for tourism or business purposes, in 26 countries in the Schengen Economic Area for up to 90 days in a 180-day timeframe and will hold valid for up to 3 years from the date it is issued or the expiry of the passport, whichever comes first.
HOW DO I APPLY FOR AN ETIAS?
The ETIAS application is expected to take about 10 minutes to fill out. It will be online so you will not have to go through paperwork. The only things you will need to apply for the ETIAS is your valid passport, an email address and payment method and possibly a digital photograph!
