Agreement On Visa-Free Regime

All Annex II nationals may enter each of these countries in Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus and Romania for a maximum period of 90 days, without a visa, over a period of 180 days. Visa-free time restrictions for each of these countries are calculated separately (and are also separate from the Schengen duration exemption). However, some problems that require the immediate attention of the beneficiaries of the visa-at-sea regime have already emerged. [2] Are asylum seekers threatened with visa waiver? Interview with Alexandra Stglmayer, Secretary General of the European Stability Initiative (ESI) to seetv.blastmedia.eu/story/index/vocabulary_id/themes/term_id/264/story_id/16193/media_id/39558 Australian and New Zealand citizens benefit from a more liberal visa policy, as both governments have signed bilateral visa agreements with some Schengen countries. Australian nationals can spend up to 90 days in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden, without reference to time spent in other Schengen signatory countries. [41] New Zealand citizens can spend up to 90 days in Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland (as well as Hungary, when visiting it as a definitive Schengen destination), without reference to the time spent in other Schengen signatory States[42][43][44][45][46][46][47]]][49] but if they travel to other Schengen countries that have 90 days in any there is a period of 180 days. The EU requires all Annex II countries and territories to grant 90 days of visa waiver to nationals of all Schengen States and other EU countries that implement the common visa rules (Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus and Romania, but not Ireland). If it is found that an Annex II country is not fully reciprocal, the EU may decide to suspend the visa waiver for certain categories or, later, for all nationals of that country. [18] One of the most recent measures, which has had a considerable impact on the lives of citizens of South-Eastern Europe (EES), is the Visa Facilitation Agreement with the European Union (EU), which entered into force at the end of last year in Albania and Bosnia and Herzegovina, which joined the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia – Montenegro and Serbia, who had joined the liberalized regime a year earlier. The EU has concluded visa facilitation agreements with several countries to facilitate the issuance of visas, both for EU citizens and for nationals of partner countries. .
