Entering the EU - Online visa application process and digital visa. European public consultation

The EU is considering the digitalisation of the two phases of the visa application: presentation of visa application and supporting documentation, and the issuance of the visa sticker. In order to improve and evaluate the implementation of the preliminary phase of this initiative, the Commission recently launched a public consultation that aims to obtain the views of citizens and stakeholders on the envisaged initiative, in particular on the usefulness of an online application process and EU/national application portal, as well as the replacement of a visa sticker with a digital visa. More specifically, the consultation aims to gather views of stakeholders on the impact of different policy options, as well as on the legal, economic and practical aspects of the possible digitalisation of the visa procedures. The consultation will end on June 3, 2021.

It is possible to access the questionnaire through the following link https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/better-regulation/have-your-say/initiatives/12758-Digitalisation-of-visa-procedures/public-consultation
