We iterate the algebraic étale-Brauer set of a nice variety X over a number field k and show that, when the geometric étale fundamental group of X is finite, the iteration doesn’t yield any new information. This result gives, among other things, evidence for the conjectures by Colliot-Thélène and Skorobogatov about the arithmetic behaviour of rational points on rationally connected varieties and K3 surfaces, and a partial answer to a question by Poonen on iterating the descent set.
