Unfortunately, with an ETIAS visa waiver, Mexican nationals are not able to seek employment or labour in Europe. This is because ETIAS may only be utilised in Schengen member countries for tourist, transit, and commercial purposes, not full-time work.

Working in Europe with an ETIAS may result in the loss of your permit and/or deportation from the Schengen region since it violates the visa waiver’s pre-established requirements. To work in Europe, you must first apply for the relevant national visa of the country in which you desire to work.

Unfortunately, Mexican nationals cannot utilise an ETIAS to study. This is due to the fact that studying in a Schengen nation is not covered by the ETIAS visa waiver, which is only valid for tourist, business, and transit.

To study in a European country, Mexicans must first get a national visa or a suitable study visa, depending on the location and the duration of the course.

The admission criteria to the European Schengen region are less stringent than those in the United States. However, if you have committed and been prosecuted for minor criminal acts in Mexico, you will not be automatically excluded from entering the European Union.

Mexicans with a criminal record who seek for ETIAS will be refused only if they are assessed to pose an obvious risk to the European public.

No, ETIAS is not a visa; instead, it is a travel authorization for non-EU nationals who do not require a visa for brief visits to the Schengen Area. Mexican tourists and business travellers can visit the Schengen Area visa-free for up to 90 days; however, once registration becomes necessary, they must register with ETIAS.
