The EU plans to transfer the receipt Schengen visas to an online format
The European Commission proposed to transfer the issuance of Schengen visas to an online format through the European visa platform. “Today we are moving EU visa policy into the digital age. With some Member States already going digital, it is vital that the Schengen Area move forward as a whole. We offer a fully digital visa application to help travelers and Member States have a more comfortable and secure application process, — says EC Deputy Chairman Margaritis Schinas (quote from Interfax). TLS, the operator of Swiss visa centers, has begun accepting documents for issuing visas in full. «Application for submission of documents in our centers is open in full», – stated in the message of the operator. From May 2, Switzerland lifts restrictions on the entry of tourists imposed due to the coronavirus pandemic. From now on, the normal entry rules will apply.
