This list features all 26 official and defacto
ETIAS Europe countries
Therefore, the border of countries where the ETIAS visa waiver takes effect is
the same border as that of the Schengen area. European nations that exist
outside of the borders have independent entrance policies, and Mauritians
must arrange the necessary documentation to visit these nations.
Completing an ETIAS application is simple, requiring minimal documentation.
Mauritians need to prepare copies of their passport and proof of address
to be sent off alongside their completed ETIAS application form.
The ETIAS application form features an array of questions of varying seriousness
and complexity. To apply for ETIAS, Mauritians need to supply simple personal
information and answer questions intended to determine if they are a threat. They are…
- Their previous trips to conflict zones
- Their planned travel itinerary
- If they carry any infectious diseases
- Their terrorist, criminal, or human trafficking past
- European travel
What Security Reasons Justify Rejection of an ETIAS Application
The EU has made it difficult for Mauritians with serious criminal or terrorist
convictions to enter the Schengen area. On the ETIAS system,
within 15 years of the application, and terrorist convictions within 25 years
will provoke rejection of the application.
The Covid-19 crisis will change how people with infectious diseases can travel as
nations attempt to protect themselves from the next global pandemic. The ETIAS is
one such step taken by the EU, and it will be used to limit the travel of those with
infectious diseases into the EU
