The Commission is reviewing the procedures for issuing short-stay visas (shorter than 3 months) and would like to hear your views on your experience. The idea is to modernise the policy and your input via this public consultation will help us to make the right changes.
The legislation ( Regulation No 810/2009 Visa Code )
on issuing short-stay visas for travel in the Schengen area (the СVisa CodeТ) has now been in force for three years.
Now the Commission wants to assess whether the legislation has achieved its objectives. Building on this evaluation, the Commission plans to propose amendments to revise the Visa Code and to further develop and modernise the common visa policy.
Among the aims of this review are to ensure 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.
That is why the Commission wants to hear from the main СusersТ of the common visa policy: individuals, interest groups, advocacy groups and professional organisations.
Tell us about your experience by replying to our questionnaire. You do not need to answer all of the questions. However, for your response to be taken into account, all questions under СYour ProfileТ need to be answered. If you have any concerns regarding data protection matters, please consult the Privacy Statement.
Send written contributions on the issues covered in the questionnaire or on any other issue linked to the implementation of the Visa Code. Organizations are also invited to encourage individual members to reply to the questionnaire. Please send your contributions to: Home-Consultation-C2@ec.europa.eu
The public consultation questionnaire is available at:
Translations of the questionnaire into French, Portuguese, Spanish, Russian, Turkish, Chinese and Arabic should be available from 10 April.
Deadline for answering : 17 June 2013
At a time of changes as far as the future EU cooperation programmes are concerned, DG EAC prepared a so-called "visitors pack" providing a list of reference documents (including electronic links) concerning EU policies and programmes in the field of education and research.
We think most of these documents should be interesting for your communication activities with national authorities and stakeholders.
Please, have a look at it and disseminate it widely !!!
