SESSION II - The proposal for the new Touring Visa

 

The touring visa is a new type of visa which would permit the future holder to travel within the Schengen Area for a total of more than 90 days in any 180-day period, provided that he does not stay in the same Member State for more than 90 days. The visa would be valid for one year, and be renewed for an additional year, extending its total period of validity to a maximum of two years.

 

During this hearing and following the rapporteur’s introduction, the speakers’ views will be sought on the following questions:

 

-    What would be the relevance of the touring visa?

-    What do you think of the potential economic impact?

-    What do you think of the security and migratory risks?

-    Do you think the scope should be narrowed or extended regarding above considerations?
