EUCIS-LLL welcomes the revision of the “Visa Directive”

The purpose of the Council Directive 2004/114 is to determine the conditions and procedures for admission of third-country nationals to the territory of the Member States for a period exceeding three months for the purposes of research, studies, pupil exchange, remunerated and unremunerated training or voluntary service. The implementation of this directive shows a number of weaknesses. This is why EUCIS-LLL strongly supports the European Commission’s efforts to improve the rules by  revising the existing directive. EUCIS-LLL made some concrete recommendations in order to have a more coherent and efficient system in the EU.
