The ETIAS visa waiver allows Solomon Islander citizens to conduct business in any and all Schengen member countries (see full list above) for up to 90 days per 180-day period.

Although Solomon Islands ETIAS holders are permitted to visit Europe for business, workshops, or conferences, they are not permitted to seek employment in the EU.

Solomon Islands passport holders who wish to work in the European Union must apply for a work visa at the embassy of the country in which they wish to reside.

Citizens of the Solomon Islands who are discovered working on an ETIAS in Europe may face serious consequences, such as fines, the revocation of their visa waiver, or even deportation.

A Solomon Islander can stay in Europe for more than 90 days in a variety of ways.

Because the ETIAS allows Solomon Islander holders to enter Schengen countries multiple times for 90-day stays, the traveller may spend the second 90-day period in a non-Schengen European country. When the visitor’s 180-day period expires, he or she will be granted a new 90-day stay in the Schengen Area.

Another way for a Solomon Islands citizen to legally stay in Europe for an extended period of time is to apply for a student, work, or residency visa at the embassy or consulate of the country in question.
