Kiribatian ETIAS holders can stay in the Schengen Area for up to 90 days on business. They can enter all Schengen member countries for short business trips several times within the ETIAS’ 3-year validity period, as long as they do not exceed the authorised 90-day total.

The ETIAS for Kiribati is useful for those who want to tour different European cities before deciding where they want to live and work.

Nonetheless, the ETIAS prohibits Kiribatians from working or seeking employment in the Schengen Area. It is necessary to have a work visa or authorization.

Passport holders from the Republic of Kiribati can stay in the Schengen Area without a visa for up to 90 days each 180-day term. They can enter Europe simply by producing their passports and, beginning in late 2023, ETIAS.

Nonetheless, because not all European countries are members of the Schengen Area, a Kiribatian citizen who wishes to stay in Europe for more than 90 days has the option of spending 90 days in a European non-Schengen Nation after spending 90 days in a Schengen member country, provided they have the appropriate travel permit.

Since the ETIAS is a multiple entry travel authorisation, once the holder has spent 90 days outside the Schengen Area, they may be granted another 90 days they may spend in any and all Schengen member nations.

Kiribatian citizens who wish to live long-term in the Schengen Area, however, will have to apply for a resident, work, or student visa. This can be done in person at the embassy or consulate for the country they wish to live in.

The ETIAS visa waiver will be required for all citizens of visa-free nations to enter the country. It will be open to all ages beginning in late 2023.

Kiribatian nationals travelling with children to a Schengen country can apply for an ETIAS on their behalf.

Parents and guardians of Kiribatian minors can use the child’s personal and passport information to complete the ETIAS travel authorization application:

  • Full name, as it appears on the child’s Kiribatian passport
  • Date of birth
  • Country of birth
  • Passport number
  • Passport country
  • Passport issue date
  • Passport expiry date
  • Contact details —can be the parent or guardian’s information
