The ETIAS is required for all Tongan visitors to Europe, regardless of age. Minors are included. Tongan parents or guardians may apply for an ETIAS on their children’s behalf by completing the following form with the child’s personal and passport information:

  • Full name
  • Nationality
  • Date of birth
  • Country of birth
  • Passport number
  • Issue date and country of passport
  • Passport expiry date
  • Intended date of entry into the Schengen Area
  • Schengen member state of arrival

Please keep in mind that while filing for an ETIAS on behalf of a Tongan child, the parent or legal guardian may use the adult’s email address and cell phone number in the contact area.

The ETIAS allows Tongans to stay in the European Schengen countries for up to 90 days.

Travellers from Tonga who desire to remain in the Schengen Area for more than 90 days in a 180-day period should contact the embassy or consulate of the nation in question. Diplomatic officials will be able to advise them on the best European long-term visa for their trip purpose and duration of stay.

The European Union holds transport carriers accountable for ensuring that all passengers, including Tongan nationals, have the necessary travel documents to enter Europe.

Tonga passport holders travelling to a non-Schengen destination with connecting flights landing in a Schengen country must carry a valid ETIAS. Airport personnel will request the Tongan citizen’s passport to verify whether the traveller has an approved ETIAS travel authorization.

Even if the Tongan citizen’s final destination is not a Schengen country in Europe, if their flight includes a stopover in one, they will require an ETIAS visa waiver for transit purposes.
