CHANGES TO THE SCHENGEN VISA CODE

Please note that the changes to the Schengen Visa Code which were adopted by the EU in June 2018 will become enforceable on 2 February 2020.

One of the main changes is an increase of the visa fees which will be increasing from 60 EUR to 80 EUR for all applicants over the age of 12. In addition, children between ages of 6 and 12 will now also be subject to a visa fee (40 EUR).

We will be updating our website to reflect the changes in due course.

Please note that all visa applications submitted on or after the 2 February will be subject to the changes.
