European Commission logoYour opinion matters!
The Commission is reviewing the procedures for issuing short-stay visas for travel in the Schengen area (shorter than 3 months) and has just launched a public consultation. This review aims at ensuring that EU visa policy fosters economic growth and cultural exchange by facilitating the process for legitimate travellers to the EU, such as business people, tourists, students and young people, while ensuring a high level of security for the EU. The Commission wants to hear from the main ‘users’ of the common visa policy: individuals, interest groups, advocacy groups and professional organisations.
