1 Modernising the EU's policy on short-stay Schengen visas Fields marked with * are mandatory. Introduction Have you obtained a short-stay Schengen visa over the past 5 years, or would you like to make your voice heard on how these visas are issued? The European Commission (hereinafter the 'Commission') is reviewing the procedures for issuing 'Schengen' visas and would like to hear your views on them. The idea is to modernise the current visa policy and your input via this public consultation will help us to make the right changes. The situation regarding migration and security in Europe has fundamentally changed during the past few years. The visa process is a key tool to prevent risks of irregular migration and security risks to the European Union (EU). At the same time, visa policy fosters economic growth and cultural exchange by facilitating the process for travellers to the EU who comply with the legal entry criteria, such as business people, tourists, students and young people. We are considering whether the EU's policy on visas still strikes the right balance between these objectives and how it can be changed to address current challenges in terms of migration and mobility, including how visa policy could be used in the EU's relationship with third countries. That is why the Commission wants to hear from the main users of the common visa policy: individuals, interest groups, advocacy groups, think tanks and professional organisations. We want to hear from as broad a range of users as possible, as it is important to get views and input from all stakeholders. Individuals: Tell us about your experience and views 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 the 'About you' section need to be answered. If you have any concerns regarding data protection matters, please consult the Privacy Statement. Organisations: Send written contributions on any issue linked to the implementation of the Visa Code through the online questionnaire. Organisations are also invited to encourage individual members to reply to the questionnaire. Important note: The EU's common visa policy covers only short stay visas ( Schengen visas for stays of up to 90 days in any 180-day period) and is currently applied by 22 EU Member States (Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Greece, Spain, France, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Hungary, Malta, the Netherlands, Austria, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, 1

2 Slovakia, Finland and Sweden) and four associated states (Iceland, Liechtenstein, rway and Switzerland). This consultation only concerns issues related to Schengen short stay visas. It does not apply to issues concerning long stay visas or residence permits. If you have any questions about this consultation, please feel free to us at: Home-B2- Disclaimer: Please note that this consultation is intended to gather information and suggestions, and does not prejudge the final form of any decision the European Commission may take.

11 32 What is your most frequent purpose of travel to the EU? Tourism Business/professional Political, scientific, cultural, sports, religious event Short-term internship/exchange programme Family visit Other 33 Please specify 34 Did you ever find that you could not submit your visa application because the Schengen State to which you wanted to travel did not have a consulate in the country in which you are a legal resident, and was not represented by another Schengen State? 35 Please provide more details on whether/how you overcame this obstacle 500 character(s) maximum 36 For your most recent visa application, how far did you have to travel to get to the consulate of the Schengen State where you wanted to submit your application? (Please provide travel distance in kilometres.) 37 How long did it take you to get there? (Please provide travel time in hours.) 38 Short-stay visa applications cannot be submitted earlier than three months before the start of a planned visit. In your opinion: This timing is acceptable More flexibility would enable better planning for the visit More flexibility would enable applicants to avoid peak periods and long waiting times at consulates 39 Many consulates cooperate with external service providers who receive applications at 'visa application centres' on behalf of the consulate. However, consulates have to keep open the possibility of receiving visa applications directly. Did you know this? If so, have you had any experience with this option? I am aware of this possibility, and have made a direct application at a consulate I am aware of this possibility, but decided to apply at the visa application centre I am aware of this possibility, but when I needed to apply urgently for a visa, I could not get in contact with the consulate, so I needed to apply at a visa application centre 11

12 I am aware of this possibility, but when I wanted to apply directly at a Schengen State consulate, I was told that it was not possible and that I had to apply at the visa application centre I am not aware of this possibility 40 Some consulates require applicants to make an appointment to lodge their visa application. As a rule, the appointment is supposed to take place within two weeks of the date on which it was requested. If you applied for a visa at a consulate which requires an appointment, did you get an appointment within two weeks? t relevant, because I did not need to make an appointment to lodge my visa application 41 How long did you have to wait for an appointment? (Please provide duration in days.) 42 In your opinion: A two-week timeframe for appointments is acceptable A two-week timeframe for appointments is acceptable, considering that in urgent cases, the requirement to make an appointment is waived A two-week timeframe for appointments is acceptable, but consulates take longer than two weeks to give appointments The timeframe is not acceptable, as consulates do not allow urgent applications to be made directly without an appointment 43 If you are a frequent traveller and have previously had several visas, have you been offered any benefits because of this? t applicable, because I am not a frequent traveller 44 I have been offered benefits regarding: t having to apply in person t having to present certain document(s) concerning the purpose of the journey t having to present document(s) concerning accommodation t having to present document(s) concerning my financial means t having to present document(s) concerning my situation in my home country Receiving a multiple-entry visa valid for a longer time than I applied for Other 45 Please give more details for each relevant item. 500 character(s) maximum Please estimate the overall cost of your latest application for a visa. Include all costs incurred until you received your passport, in EUR or USD: 12

13 46 Cost of making an appointment (phone call), if applicable 47 Visa fee 48 Service fee to the service provider (if applicable) 49 Travel medical insurance 50 Obtaining all supporting documents required 51 Translation of supporting documents (if applicable) 52 Travel costs (getting to/from the consulate/service provider, attending additional interview (if applicable), collecting passport) 53 Costs or cancellation fee due to booking accommodation or flights that were not used 54 Other costs (please specify) 55 How long did it take last time you applied for a Schengen visa, from your first contact with the consulate or service provider until you could collect your passport? Less than 3 days 3 to 10 days 10 to 30 days More than 1 month 56 Have you applied for a so-called multiple entry visa? 13

14 , I have never heard about that type of visa, because I do not travel to the Schengen area very often, because I was told it was best to apply for multiple entries to obtain at least a single-entry visa, I always apply for multiple entry visas because I need to be able to travel regularly to different Schengen States at short notice 57 If your last visa was for multiple entries, what was the period of validity? Less than 6 months Between 6 months and 1 year 1-2 years 2-3 years 3-4 years 4-5 years t applicable, because my last visa was not a multiple-entry visa 58 If your last visa was for multiple-entries, how many spontaneous trips to the EU have you taken (or will you still take) during the validity of this visa, which were not already planned at the time you applied for the visa? 59 What did you find most difficult about the visa procedure? Please give scores for the options below (as many options as applicable): 1-5 (1=most difficult, 5=least difficult) 1 (most difficult) (least difficult) Cost of the visa fee Overall cost of the procedure (fees, travelling costs, costs of providing supplementary documents, travel medical insurance, etc.) Behaviour of the officials/persons involved in the processing Obtaining all the necessary supporting documents Travel medical insurance Having to apply in person Getting access to information Length of the procedure Involvement of external service providers in the procedure 60 Other - Please specify and score on a scale from 1 (most difficult) to 5 (least difficult) 14

15 61 Would your experience with the Schengen visa process deter you from travelling to the Schengen area again? 62 Please explain why 500 character(s) maximum 63 If you are a frequent traveller and have applied for several Schengen visas in the past few years, have you noticed any changes in the Schengen visa procedure, whether positive or negative? The situation has improved over time: the procedure has become more client friendly/faster/easier I have not experienced any changes The situation has got worse: the procedure has become more cumbersome/takes longer/costs more t applicable, because I have not applied for several Schengen visas 64 Please explain further 500 character(s) maximum 65 Have you already applied for Schengen visas at the consulates of different countries? 66 Were the experiences the same?, there was no difference in the requirements and procedures between the different consulates, the experience was different 67 Please explain further the differences you experienced between the consulates 500 character(s) maximum 68 Have you already applied for a visitor's visa to the UK, Ireland, Canada, the US, Japan, Australia or New Zealand? 69 How would you compare the experience to your most recent application for a Schengen visa? The application for a Schengen visa was easier and more straightforward The application for the other visitors' visa was easier and more straightforward 70 Please specify the other country and explain further the differences you experienced. 500 character(s) maximum 15
