New visa fees applicable as of 1st January 2007

The fees for short-stay visas to all Schengen states, including Norway, have been increased to EUR 60 (GBP 40) with effect from 1 January 2007. They are to be paid in a convertible currency or in the national currency on the basis of the official exchange rate at the time.

In certain cases, the fee may be waived or reduced in accordance with national legislation, when this would serve to promote cultural, foreign policy or development policy interests, other areas of vital public interest, or for humanitarian reasons.

The fee is waived for visa applicants in any of the following categories:

- children under 6 years,
- school pupils, students, post-graduate students and accompanying teachers who undertake trips for the purpose of study or educational training, and
- researchers from third countries travelling for the purpose of carrying out scientific research, as per specific rules.

Until 1 January 2008, the visa fee for nationals of Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, FYR of Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Russia, Serbia and Ukraine will still be EUR 35 (GBP25).
