Schengen visa with less documents
European Union has decided to "simplify" its Schengen visa procedure starting from July. Accordingly, the number of documents requested for visa application will be reduced and applications will be assessed in 15 days the longest. Moreover, all consulates will accept a single-type application form. With the new procedure, an applicant whose application is rejected will be informed in writing about the reasons of the rejection. In the next phase, certain profession groups will be given long-term visas and visa fees will be reduced by half.
