Travelers from Saint Kitts and Nevis who have more than one valid passport due to dual citizenship must pick which passport to use.

If the citizen’s second passport is from a visa-required nation, they will find it far more comfortable to travel on their Saint Kitts and Nevis passport with an ETIAS — which is far faster and easier to get.

Should both passports be ETIAS eligible, it would be advisable to use the one with the longest validity (furthest expiration date) to use the travel authorisation for a full 3 years.

Because the ETIAS is electronically linked to the same passport used in the application procedure, it cannot be transferred to a second passport, even if they are both owned by the same individual.

Therefore, it is very important to apply for the ETIAS using the passport you will travel to Europe with.

The ETIAS travel authorization will be valid for up to three years for passport holders from Saint Kitts and Nevis.

If the passport of Saint Kitts and Nevis expires sooner, the ETIAS will be invalid and a new application must be made. ETIAS is only valid in the passport used to apply for it and cannot be transferred to a new passport.

The ETIAS will let Saint Kitts and Nevis residents to enter the Schengen Area several times throughout its three-year validity period. As a result, there is no need to apply for a new ETIAS before each trip because it enables an infinite number of entries.

The ETIAS permits Kittitian or Nevisian nationals to stay in Europe for up to 90 days in each 180-day period. These might be consecutive days or spread out across many visits.

Applicants are advised to be as honest and as accurate as possible when answering security questions on their ETIAS form from Saint Kitts and Nevis.

It is possible for Kittitian or Nevisian nationals with a criminal record to still be able to obtain an ETIAS travel authorisation. For their ETIAS to be granted, applicants would need to be considered not to pose a threat to the security and wellbeing of the European Union.

In the event that a Kittitian’s or Nevisian’s ETIAS application is refused, whether for having a criminal record, or for another reason, the applicant will be notified via email. The email notification for a denied ETIAS from Saint Kitts and Nevis will contain the grounds for the refusal as well as instructions on how to appeal the decision, should the traveler wish to do so.

If the ETIAS is denied once more after the Kittitian or Nevisian national’s appeal, they may still be eligible to apply for a consular visa or Schengen visa to enter the European Union.
