Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What does ETIAS stand for?
ETIAS stands for European Travel Information and Authorization System. This has been created to manage the entry of visitors from non-EU countries that don’t need a visa.
As we see an increase in border control due to higher rates of crime and illegal immigration, the European Union came up with ETIAS for a better way to handle its borders.
iVisa can help you to go through your ETIAS here.
I’m a Mauritius citizen, should I get an ETIAS?
As a citizen of Mauritius, you must get an ETIAS if you intend to visit France or any other country part of the Schengen agreement.
ETIAS is not a visa and you won’t have to go through a usual visa process, this new process is very simple and iVisa makes it faster with its platform, don’t wait any longer and apply now!
How long is my France ETIAS valid?
If you have an approved ETIAS, this will be valid for 3 years or the validity of your travel document linked to the ETIAS, whichever comes first. When you are traveling around the Schengen countries, remember that you get a maximum of 90 days to stay there in a 180-day period in total.
Can I travel to other EU countries with the France ETIAS?
Yes! ETIAS is not a document exclusive from France. Remember that France is part of the Schengen space and they comply with all the immigration guidelines established by the European Union. Then ETIAS is valid for the 26 states of the Schengen agreement.
