Dear Travel Partners,
As advised earlier a Schengen visa fee is set to increase to €80 from the current €60.
A Schengen visa is needed for 26 European countries, including Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Switzerland and Spain.
The new fees will come into effect from February 2.
“The visa fee will increase to Euro 80 (for applicants not only from India, but from all countries except those with which the EU has a visa facilitation agreement),” said a European Commission spokesperson.
The increase in the visa fee comes as an updated Schengen Visa Code will apply from February 2, 2020, he said.
Children aged 6 to 12 will have to pay Euro 40 instead of Euro 35, as it is currently, the spokesperson said.
According to exchange rates on Wednesday, a Euro is equivalent to Rs. 78.93. There will be no fee for infants and children below six years of age as there is “no change” in this regard in the updated regulations. The cost of applying for a Schengen visa had remained unchanged since 2006.
More Visa Fee changes have come in this week as below;
Germany, UK, Czech Republic, Mexico, Morocco and Georgia. Our site is updated.
