Schengen Visa Fees Set to Increase by 12% Starting June 2024

The European Commission has announced a 12% increase in Schengen visa fees worldwide, effective June 11, 2024. For adult applicants, the fee will rise from €80 to €90. The fee for children aged six to twelve will also increase, moving from €40 to €45.

Slovenia’s Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs confirmed this update, stating, “The fee for adult applicants will rise from €80 to €90. Additionally, the fee for children aged six to 12 will increase from €40 to €45.”

Moreover, for countries not cooperating with the EU on the readmission of irregularly staying citizens, visa fees could surge to €135 or even €180, according to the Ministry.

The European Union cites inflation and increased salaries of civil servants as the primary reasons for this price hike, as reported by Business Standard. The Schengen Visa Code mandates that EU visa fees be reviewed every three years. The last fee increase was in February 2020, when the cost rose from €60 to €80.

A Schengen visa permits non-EU citizens to visit Schengen countries for up to 90 days within a 180-day period. The Schengen area comprises 29 European countries, including Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Greece, Spain, France, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Hungary, Malta, the Netherlands, Austria, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Finland, Sweden, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland.

Travelers planning to visit Europe should prepare for these additional costs.
