The Consulate General of Finland in St. Petersburg called the Russians a method of producing a five-year Schengen visa. About it reports the edition “Fontanka”.
The Consulate said that the visa for five years will now be able to give tourists who have within the preceding three years was already a Schengen visa with multiple entry for at least two years.
In addition, it is noted that the document should be correctly used, i.e. the main country of travel must be Finland.
31 Jan experts revealed the price of the visa fee for the Russians after the introduction of the new rules of obtaining Schengen visas. It is noted that the value of the Schengen area will remain the same — 35 euros (2430 roubles). This amount is spelled out in the agreement on simplification of visa regime between Russia and the European Union, which was concluded in 2006.
A new amendment to the visa code will take effect from 2 February. Representatives of several travel companies spoke about the obvious advantages of innovation. So, travelers will have the opportunity to apply for a visa for six months, not three months before the trip. This will avoid delays in periods of high demand.
