Public consultation on the application process for Schengen visas

The European Commission has opened a public consultation on the process of applying for Schengen visas (up to 90 days).

The aim is to gather the views and concerns of all interested citizens and organisations regarding the common Visa Policy. The received inputs will help the Commission develop proposals for better balancing improved migration, security and border management with the benefits of facilitated visa and visa-free travel. Once the consultation period is over, the results will be taken into account when preparing future Commission proposals in the area of visa policy. The responses can be sent as organizations or as single individuals.
The deadline for the participation to the survey is the 2nd of February 2018. The public consultation is available here: https://ec.europa.eu/info/consultations/modernising-eus-common-visa-policy_en.
