WHAT IS THE AIM OF THESE AGREEMENTS?

  • They form part of the common European Union (EU) visa policy and aim to facilitate travel of legitimate travellers between the EU and certain non-EU countries, on a reciprocal basis.
  • The agreements provide for visa-free travel for the citizens of the EU and for the citizens of a non-EU country when travelling to the territory of the other party for a maximum period of 90 days in any 180-day period.

KEY POINTS

The Schengen area

The agreements apply only to travel to and from Schengen-area countries. 22 of the 27 EU Member States participate in the Schengen area. Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus and Romania are legally obliged to join the area in due course, while Ireland maintains an opt-out. Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland are not members of the EU but are part of the Schengen area.

Visa waiver agreements

The visa waiver agreements referred to are agreements between the EU and non-EU countries that allow visa-free travel for their passport-holding citizens when travelling to the territory of the other party, for up to 90 days during a 180-day period.

Principal conditions

  • The 90-day period is calculated independently of any stay in a non-Schengen EU country.
  • The agreements do not normally affect the possibility for the parties to extend the period of stay beyond 90 days in accordance with their respective national laws and EU law.
  • The agreements do not normally apply to the non-European territories of France or of the Netherlands.
  • The visa waiver does not apply to persons travelling for the purpose of carrying out a paid activity, unless decided otherwise on a country-by-country basis by the parties.
  • The countries involved reserve the right to refuse entry if the conditions for entry or short stay are not met.
  • A joint committee of experts monitors the implementation of the agreement, with the EU being represented by the European Commission.
  • The parties may suspend or terminate the agreement only in respect of all Member States.

Separate agreements apply to visa waivers for diplomatic or official passport holders travelling to or from Brazil or China.

In the visa waiver agreements between the EU and Brazil the allowed stay is defined as ‘3 months during a 6-month period’. It is currently being aligned with the definition used in the rest of the agreements: ‘90 days during a 180-day period’.

Regulation (EU) 2018/1806 on visa requirements for non-EU nationals contains a list of countries whose nationals do not require visas to travel to the EU and a list of countries whose nationals must be in possession of a visa when travelling to the EU.

The EU Visa Code establishes the procedures and conditions for issuing visas for short stays in and transit through the territories of Member States. It also lists the non-EU countries whose nationals are required to hold an airport transit visa when passing through the international transit areas of EU airports and establishes the procedures and conditions for issuing such visas.
