EU: the cost of Schengen visas for Russians will not increase

the Cost of Schengen visas for Russians will not grow, assured the head of the EU delegation to Moscow, Ambassador Markus Ederer. The increase in charges for the issue of visas to EU countries for foreigners, Russian citizens will not be affected, he assured. Visa for Russians will cost 35 euros, because European Union countries are interested in increasing the tourist flow from Russia.

the Russians occupy the first place in the number of received Schengen visas, notes TASS. The people of Russia overtake on this indicator such countries as larger than the population of India and China.

the New visa code of the EU will come into force at the beginning of February 2020. It contained additional measures on simplification of visa procedures. But this is going to affect Russian citizens, said Markus Ederer.
