Hearing on the Visa Code and Humanitarian Visas

Human Rights
Date: Tuesday, 10 July 2018 15:30 - 18:30

Venue: European Parliament, Paul-Henri Spaak building, room PHS 1A002  |  City: Bruxelles

On Tuesday, 10 July 2018 from 15:30 to 18:30, LIBE Committee will hold a hearing on the Visa Code and Humanitarian Visas, in order to gather the input of experts and stakeholders for its further works.

The Visa Code contains the conditions and procedures for the issuing of Schengen short-stay visas and is one of the core elements of the EU's common visa policy. It has not been revised since its entry into force in 2010. The current Commission proposal focuses on streamlining and improving operational aspects of the visa procedure and adding new elements, such as the increase on the visa fees, clearer rules on the issuing of multiple entry visas with a long period of validity and the so-called leverage role that visa policy can exert in the EU's readmission policy.

The second part of the Hearing will focus on Humanitarian Visas. The European Parliament is currently drafting a legislative own-initiative report under Rule 45 of the Rules of Procedure, to call upon the Commission to present a separate legislative act on Humanitarian Visas.
