ETIAS travel authorisations will stay valid for up to 3 years. The ETIAS visa waiver for Honduran citizens is a multiple-entry travel document. This means that during the 3 years of ETIAS validityHonduran travellers will be able to exit and enter Europe repeatedly.

ETIAS holders can stay within the Schengen zone for up to 90 days within any 6-month period.

It’s important to remember that the ETIAS visa waiver is linked to the applicant’s passport. If the passport expires before the ETIAS runs out, the traveller will have to apply for a new ETIAS.

The ETIAS visa waiver is an authorisation for tourism, business, and transit purposes. This means that no, Hondurans will not be permitted to work in the Schengen area legally on an ETIAS travel authorisation.

Should you start working after having reached Europe with an ETIAS, this would mean breaking the conditions of your ETIAS visa waiver as well as the European immigration regulations. This may result in your ETIAS being canceled and even in fines and removal from the Schengen Area.

If you’re a Honduran citizen wishing to work in Europe, you can get information on the visa options available to you. The best place to start is the embassy or consulate of the European country you wish to work in.

Although Honduran travellers are asked about their criminal record as part of the online ETIAS application, this does not mean that having a criminal record will prevent them from crossing the Schengen border.

Honduran travellers will be denied a ETIAS visa waiver only if they are considered a threat to the safety of the European public. Minor criminal offenses committed in Honduras will not necessarily result in the rejection of a ETIAS application.

The ETIAS is a permit for short-term stays in the Schengen Area. After 90 days, the European authorities expect you to follow the terms of your authorisation and exit the Schengen zone. You then won’t be able to re-enter the Schengen territory until 180 days have passed.

Overstaying the 90 days of your visa waiver goes directly against the terms of your ETIAS and the European immigration policies. This doesn’t only risk your ETIAS being canceled but may have more serious consequences (including affecting your chances to get a new ETIAS in the future, and even fines and detention).

If you wish to stay in Europe long-term, you should explore visa options that are intended for immigration purposes. You may do so by consulting with the embassy of the European country you intend to live in.
