Modernising the short-stay Schengen Visa (February 2018)
Pearle* urges the Commission to present an ambitious modernized EU policy on visa bearing in mind the needs of the sectors which rely on relations with artists from third-countries.

Visa procedures have to be improved so that these artists and cultural professionals can travel more easily to and in-out the Schengen zone. In Pearle’s view a general and harmonized approach for legitimate third-country national travelers has to be the basis of the visa policy review in order to provide transparency and clear rules. However, the EU can also respond to specific sector needs. This has been done to accommodate needs by employers for highly qualified or seasonal work; for research and education purposes, in the context of the visa code for seafarers or in the case of Olympic games.
