Questions to Answer when Seychellois apply for ETIAS
Applying for ETIAS online
is all about proving safety both in terms of potential criminal
and terrorist activity that Seychellois people may carry out, and the infectious diseases
they could carry into Europe. To identify if a Seychellois person is safe to enter the EU,
their background, past travel to the EU, and planned travel will be checked through questions.
Information will then be verified through a cross-reference with Interpol data.
Background checks for ETIAS are fairly comprehensive. Seychellois must prove that they
are a law-abiding citizen by confirming that they do not have any serious convictions on
in the last 15 years. Preventing illegal immigration and people
smuggling is also a key function of ETIAS, and Seychellois will have to confirm they have
no connections with human trafficking operations. Tackling the terrorist threat is a major
purpose of the ETIAS visa waiver system, and therefore the Seychellois applicant must
confirm that they do not have a terrorist conviction in the last 25 years. Similarly, ETIAS
intends to stop people with radical and militant connections, and these Seychellois will
have to face questions on their past travel to conflict zones.
Good behavior from the Seychellois applicant during past travel to Europe will also help their
application. They will be asked for details of their past travel to Europe, and ETIAS
administrative workers will check police records to ensure that the Seychellois person was
involved in no lawlessness while in Europe.
Finally, Seychellois will need to show a travel itinerary that shows they are intending
well-intentioned and legal activity while travelling in the Schengen area.
