EU Immigration - The Schengen Short-stay Entry Visa
The Schengen Entry Visa allows visits for the purpose of tourism, visiting family/ friends, business...
The Schengen Entry Visa allows visits for the purpose of tourism, visiting family/ friends, business and medical reasons to the Schengen area which comprises 26 European countries. However, it does NOT allow the visa national to work without prior approval from the Labour Authorities. In practice, a tenacious misunderstanding exists that the Schengen visa allows the visa national to work in the Schengen area. Another tenacious misunderstanding is that the Schengen members states apply the same criteria regarding what constitutes visits for the purpose of work (permit requirement) and visits for the purpose of doing business (permit exemption). On the contrary, each of the Schengen member states has its own work permit policy. These policies differ from country to country. In this course, Jet Stigter will explain the dos and don’ts of the Schengen visa and its implications for practice.
