Although ETIAS is intended for Guatemalan nationals visiting the Schengen Area for tourism, business, or medical reasons, visitors may participate in a short recreational course or workshop while on vacation in the European Union.

Guatemalan passport holders who desire to pursue formal education, whether at the high school, college, or graduate level, must apply for a European visa. This will be determined by the nation where the foreign citizen desires to finish their education.

If this is the case, make sure to visit the embassy or consulate of the country where you desire to study to obtain information on which sort of visa applies to your unique case and the application procedures.

The ETIAS travel authorization is only valid for tourism, business, and transit in any Schengen member country. Guatemalans planning to work in the European Union must apply for a European visa. This can be accomplished by visiting the embassy or consulate of the nation in which the individual wishes to work and requesting further information.

Guatemalan citizens working in the Schengen Area with an ETIAS risk having their travel authorization withdrawn, as well as being fined and/or deported.

The ETIAS allows Guatemalan citizens to stay for 90 days within a 180-day period. This means that the tourist must leave the Schengen Area within 90 days and stay in a third-party nation for the remaining 180 days. On day 181, the tourist will be permitted another 90-day term during the next 180 days to stay in the European Union.

If a Guatemalan visitor wishes to stay for more than 90 days, he or she must apply for a visa at an embassy or consulate.

Overstaying on an ETIAS travel authorization may result in penalties, deportation, having their ETIAS cancelled, and, in certain cases, being prevented from applying for ETIAS in the future.
