When do Barbadians Need and Not Need an ETIAS Visa Waiver?
No ETIAS visa waiver is needed for Barbadians who do not want to visit within
the Schengen area. These include EU nations like Ireland, Cyprus, Croatia,
Romania, and Bulgaria, as well as non-EU nations in Europe who are not part of
the Schengen agreement.
Barbadians will have to arrange legal transit and travel in these areas as per
normal. Barbadians should go to the local representative of the nation they
want to go to, to learn what visa is going to be required.
The ETIAS visa will be needed for Barbadians to travel for business, medical
access, or pleasure to all of the Schengen and de facto Schengen states. The
22 Schengen states in the EU that the ETIAS visa waiver will give Barbadians
access to are (Finland, Portugal, Malta, Slovenia, Greece, Belgium, Italy,
France, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Spain, Luxembourg, Denmark, Lithuania,
Latvia, Germany, Austria, Sweden, Netherlands, Estonia, and the Czech
Republic). ETIAS also includes Schengen states that are not in the EU: Norway,
Switzerland, Liechtenstein, and Iceland.
The de facto Schengen states that Barbadians can access with their ETIAS visa
are the micro-states held within Schengen nations. These are Vatican City and
San Marino in Italy, and Monaco in France.
