Contribution to LexisNexis: “Visiting Schengen countries for business”

Nov 11, 2020
Our Senior Immigration Consultant Giuditta Petreni contributed to LexisNexis regarding the application of the Schengen agreement on business visits. This will be an important topic for British citizens travelling to relevant countries after the end of the transition period on 31 December 2020.
The article mainly discusses about the following points:
  • What types of activities can you, and can you not, undertake as a business visitor in a Schengen country?
  • Are there any restrictions on the amount of time you can stay as a business visitor in the Schengen area? Are there any tools which can help you keep on top of this?
  • Is there a list of countries whose nationals require a visa before travel to Schengen countries? Will the UK be on this list from 31 December 2020?
  • Will there be any additional administrative requirements for British citizens travelling to Schengen countries?
  • What are the main eligibility requirements for a Schengen business visit visa/entry as a business visitor; and what supporting documents must be shown?
  • What are some common grounds for refusal?
  • What is the process for those who have to apply for a Schengen business visit visa?
