ETIAS FOR ANTIGUA BARBUDA CITIZENS
EUROPEAN TRAVEL AUTHORISATION FOR ANTIGUA BARBUDA CITIZENS
This website is not associated with or owned by the EU. The European Union’s official website is europa.eu.
Antigua and Barbuda citizens will soon be required to register with the European Travel Information and Authorisation System in order to visit the Schengen Area visa-free.
ETIAS, which was approved in 2016 and is set to be implemented by the European Union in November 2023, is an electronic travel authorization for visa-exempt foreign people, including Antiguan and Barbudan citizens.
When completely implemented, all non-EU passport holders, not only those who require a visa, will be screened before entering the Schengen Area. ETIAS will make Europe even more secure for travellers from Antigua and Barbuda as well as the rest of the world.
Antigua and Barbuda residents will be able to complete the ETIAS application online in minutes. Because ETIAS is a visa waiver rather than a visa, there will be no need to apply at an embassy or consulate.
An granted ETIAS visa waiver for Antigua and Barbuda people allows for repeated short stays in the Schengen zone for tourist, transit, medical treatment, and business.

Applicants must meet the ETIAS standards for Antigua and Barbuda citizens. Travelers from Antigua and Barbuda must have the following documents:
- A valid passport issued by Antigua and Barbuda
- A current email address to receive ETIAS updates
- Valid credit or debit card details to pay the ETIAS processing fee

To submit an ETIAS application, the applicant must also supply information about their schooling and present employment, as well as answer a series of security-related questions.

APPLY FOR AN ETIAS FOR CITIZENS OF ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA
Citizens of Antigua and Barbuda can apply for an ETIAS visa waiver online from any location outside of the Schengen Area.
It simply takes a few minutes to fill out the ETIAS application with the necessary information and answer the health and security-related questions.
Before submitting the application, travellers should double-check that all of the information given is correct. This is due to the fact that even minor inaccuracies might create processing delays.
It is recommended that Antigua and Barbuda citizens apply for ETIAS as soon as possible before their desired trip dates. Most ETIAS applications will be processed and enhanced after automatic screening; but, in some circumstances, manual processing may be required.
Antigua and Barbuda’s approved ETIAS is electronically connected to the traveller’s passport, and the application is notified through email.
TRAVELLING TO SCHENGEN COUNTRIES WITH ETIAS FROM ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA
The ETIAS for Antigua and Barbuda will be checked before boarding a flight to Europe and crossing the external Schengen border.
Applicants from Antigua and Barbuda who have dual nationality and so several passports should use the same passport to complete the online form and travel to the Schengen Area. The authorised ETIAS for nationals of Antigua and Barbuda is electronically linked to a single travel document.
As a result, if the traveller’s passport expires during the term of the visa waiver, he or she must submit a fresh online application from outside the Schengen zone.
Those who seek to visit the Schengen zone for objectives other than those permitted by an ETIAS, such as work or study, must apply for a visa from the country of first intended entrance.
