Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What does ETIAS stand for?
ETIAS stands for European Travel Information and Authorization System. This new procedure will be requested to visitors from countries that are exempt from visas to the Schengen area. Saint Kitts and Nevis are currently visa-free to the Schengen area, therefore, they will be required an ETIAS to enter France. This form will gather information from the visitors and cross-checked it with other international bases, like Interpol. This will mean better control of borders and hopefully a decrease in crime rates and terrorism.
Is France ETIAS a visa?
No. France ETIAS is not a visa, on the contrary, ETIAS is just an authorization document. If your country doesn’t need a visa to the Schengen countries, like the case of Saint Kitts and Nevis, they won’t be requested another visa, just an ETIAS. The process is not similar either, for a visa you might need to go to the embassy and spend hours or days doing the application. ETIAS is a much easier process with an online form that you can complete here.
