Update! Schengen Visa Fee Will Increase From EUR 80 to EUR 90 Starting June 11

Starting June 11, 2024, the European Commission will implement an increase in Schengen visa fees. The fee for adult applicants will rise from EUR 80 to EUR 90; for children aged 6-12 years, the fee will increase from EUR 40 to EUR 45. Applications submitted worldwide on or after this date will be subject to the new fee structure.

In addition to this fee adjustment, the European Union announced in late April a new policy granting multiple-entry visas to citizens of Gulf countries and unifying the application process for all Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) nationals. This policy was unveiled at the High-Level Forum on Regional Security and the Gulf Cooperation Council held in Luxembourg.

According to the EU’s decision, GCC nationals will be eligible for a five-year visa if their passport is valid for the same duration, regardless of whether it is their first application. This move underscores the strategic partnership between the GCC and the European Union, aiming to enhance bilateral relations.
