European Residency

European Residency & the Schengen Visa

Travelling in Europe has been simplified with the introduction of the Schengen visa. As a visitor to the Schengen area, you will enjoy the many advantages of this unified visa system.

With a Schengen visa, you may enter one country and travel freely throughout the Schengen zone. Internal border controls have disappeared; there are no or few stops and checks. This means that internal air, road and train travel are handled as domestic trips, similar to travel from one US state to another. Those who travelled in Europe before Schengen know the difference.

The Schengen countries have joined efforts to enhance the quality of their service to the public. A central database, common procedures and criteria for visa issuance and use of the same visa sticker with high-level built-in security are all assets for both our countries and you the visitor. Moreover, the use of a common visa system has enabled the Schengen Authorities to re-organize their office network. Today the Schengen countries are represented by professional and skilled staff at a much wider network than before.
