Saint Lucians can travel to any European nation in the Schengen Zone for up to 90 days. These 90 days, however, do not have to be utilised consecutively. Instead, they can be utilised during many trips over the course of 180 days.

The regulations will remain the same when ETIAS is implemented. ETIAS will allow multiple Schengen zone admissions totaling no more than 90 days during a 180-day period.

An ETIAS visa waiver will be valid for three years, or until the accompanying passport expires, whichever occurs first. This is due to the fact that the ETIAS is electronically connected to the passport used to fill out the online form. If the Saint Lucian traveller’s passport expires, he or she must apply for a new ETIAS** from outside the Schengen Area.

Saint Lucians are unable to work in Europe with ETIAS. However, Saint Lucian nationals who desire to work in Europe may find ETIAS beneficial in visiting Schengen countries to determine if they fulfil their needs and expectations before migrating there.

The ETIAS visa waiver allows job seekers to visit multiple European countries to determine which one best meets their needs. It does, however, only enable the holder to travel to Schengen Area nations for tourist, business, medical treatment, or transit.

When going to Europe for employment, each nation has its own legislation regarding work permits and work visas. Saint Lucians planning to work in Europe should investigate the requirements of the nation they would be visiting and apply for the necessary papers.

England is a constituent country of the United Kingdom, which is not a member of the Schengen Area. As a result, an ETIAS visa waiver is useless for a visitor wishing to visit England, because the ETIAS is only valid for Schengen nations.

The good news for Saint Lucians is that they can now enter the United Kingdom and Crown dependencies such as the Isle of Man for up to 6 months without requiring a UK visa. Before travelling to the UK, visitors should double-check all admission requirements.
