When characterizing optimal solutions of both scalar and vector optimization problems usually constraint qualifications have to be satisfied. By considering sequential characterizations, given for the first time in vector optimization in this paper, this drawback is eliminated. In order to establish them we give first of all sequential characterizations for a convex composed optimization problem with geometric and cone constraints. Then, by means of scalarization, we extend them to the vector case. For exemplification we particularize the characterization in the case of linear and set scalarization.
