Timorese people must obey all requirements of the ETIAS visa waiver to be permitted short-term
access to the
They may not travel there without a valid electronic visa waiver.
These requirements are divisible into documentation and information requirements. Timorese
people must ensure their documentation is in date and has been assigned specifically in Timor
Leste. Documentation found to be invalid, or not rightly possessed by the Timorese person will
result in an application being rejected.
This requirement is serious, but only two pieces of the official documentation are ETIAS requirements.
They are a biometric passport, and proof of address. Timorese may use utility bills or bank statements
as an example of this. On top of the documentation, the Timorese person must provide an image of
themselves that is not included in any of their documentation. This image will feature on their
ETIAS visa waiver
, and should therefore be taken in the style of a passport photo.
Once they have provided this documentation, Timorese people will have ten minutes to provide relevant
and thorough information to answer the questions on the ETIAS application form. These questions
aim to validate the safety of allowing the Timorese person to travel to the Schengen area. Timorese
answers must show they have no recent terrorist or serious criminal background. This includes
connections to human trafficking.
