Chapter Summary

The starting point for the EU's visa policy is the rules on visas (for stays of under three months) contained in the 1990 Schengen Convention. The Community had adopted nine legislative measures, fourteen implementing measures and one non-binding measure concerning visa policy. The EC has had powers over visa formats since 1993, and used that power to adopt Regulation 1683/95 in 1995. The consolidation has been brought about by the completion of the common visa list and the Regulation on the issue of visas at the border. The question of adequate and effective procedural rights relating to visas is an essential part of balanced visa policy. But so far EC visa policy has not even managed to attempt a coherent approach to the subject, never mind a balanced approach to the various aspects of the policy.
