Korona i viza - stranci u zemljama Šengena

1 post in this topic

The European Commission has explained that Schengen visa holders currently in the Schengen Area, can extend their visas, as the EU visa rules provide them with the right of stay extension due to force majeure.

“For short-stay Schengen visa holders present in the Schengen area, and who cannot leave at the expiry of their short-stay visa, the visa may be extended up to a maximum stay of 90 days in any 180-day period,” the spokesperson said.

She also pointed out that persons who at the expiry of their visa have already stayed 90 days in any 180-day period should be issued a national long-stay visa or a residence permit covering the prolonged stay, in the country in which they have been stranded.

“More generally, as regards, third-country nationals who are stranded in the EU and as a result overstay their short-stay or long-stay visa or their residence permit, or who stay beyond the authorized visa-free maximum period of stay, a border guard can always make an exception if properly documented,” the spokesperson said.
