How can Vanuatans Complete their ETIAS Application?
Proving to the EU that they fulfill all of these requirements will require a Vanuatan
to adequately fill out the rigorous application form that the ETIAS administration
The EU has been even more rigorous with its plans to cross-reference all Vanuatan
applicant's data with various police databases. These cross-references will leave
no stone unturned, and Vanuatans must be extra careful not to tell any mistruths
on their application.
Any Vaunuatans with terrorist connections will run into difficulties on this application
section. The form will interrogate them on their terrorist affiliations, and will
force them to raise any convictions for terrorist activities in the last 25 years.
The EU has brought in near-identical measures to make it hard for Vanuatans with
connections with human trafficking to gain an ETIAS visa waiver.
The ETIAS administration is similarly strict when preventing Vanuatans who are criminals
from entering the Schengen area. The application asks Vanuatans to detail all criminal
convictions they have had in the last 15 years, regardless of the severity of the crime.
The last concern that the EU has in terms of its citizens' safety is their health. The
ETIAS visa waiver system will protect this by asking all Vanuatans if they have any
infectious diseases before awarding them an ETIAS. Vanuatans that carry deadly diseases
may find it difficult to visit the EU as a result.
The final point that the EU plans to check with their application form is the right
of the Vanuatan to travel, and they will do so by asking for a biometric passport and
proof of address. The latter must be with an address in Vanuatu.
