Holders of the Argentine ETIAS visa waiver will be able to enter the Schengen Area and travel between member countries for up to 90 days within a 180-day period without the need to apply for a visa. The 90-day period begins on the day the passenger first reaches any Schengen member state.

Argentine visitors with a valid ETIAS will be allowed numerous visa-free visits as long as they do not stay in the Schengen Area for more than 90 days.

To stay in the Schengen Area for more than 90 days, a visa is necessary.

Argentina citizens with a valid ETIAS visa waiver must quit the Schengen Area after spending 90 consecutive days in any and all of the member nations within a 180-day period. When the 90-day period expires, Argentine nationals must go to a third country where they are permitted to enter.

After staying in Europe for 90 days in a row, an Argentine tourist must stay outside the Schengen Area for another 90 days before being allowed to re-enter the member nations for another 90 days.

Failure to leave the Schengen Area after the 90-day ETIAS period has expired may result in fines, expulsion, or revocation of the citizen’s visa waiver.

The ETIAS travel authorization allows Argentine visitors to spend time in Schengen member countries for tourism, transit, and business purposes only, not for study.

Argentine visitors may, however, participate in a brief workshop, seminar, or training during their holiday. Argentine nationals should keep in mind that the ETIAS travel authorization does not allow them to study, work, or seek employment in Europe for an extended period of time.

Work visa possibilities are available to Argentine citizens in Schengen nations. Travellers from Argentina who desire to reside in Europe for an extended period of time, study, or work in a Schengen member state should contact the embassy or consulate of that country to obtain additional information on the suitable work visa or student visa for their situation.

Although the conditions for an ETIAS are less stringent than those for Argentine residents asking for a European visa, whether you can or cannot acquire a travel authorization with a criminal record is dependent on a number of circumstances.

For example, minor offences committed by Argentine residents may not immediately disqualify them from entering the Schengen Area. On the other hand, Argentine nationals with a substantial criminal record who apply for an ETIAS are likely to be seen as a threat to the safety and security of Schengen inhabitants and visitors alike.

Argentine citizens must honestly answer all questions on the ETIAS visa waiver application form. Furthermore, applicants are advised that failure to respond honestly may raise red flags among authorities assessing your request, reducing your chances of being granted travel authorization.
