3 European countries support the elimination of Schengen visas for Dominicans

President Luis Abinader indicated that the Italian government is in agreement with the elimination of the Schengen visa requirement for Dominicans.

He said that during his visit to that country he discussed the issue with President Sergio Matarella, who agreed with its elimination for Dominicans.

He indicated that he has the support of Portugal and Spain, and assured that he will talk with France and Germany to proceed with the request.

“I do not want to make the formal proposal (to the European Union) until the majority of the countries are in that direction. I hope to also talk with France and Germany on these aspects and if we achieve this, we will be presenting this proposal to have the Schengen visa eliminated”, he said.

Abinader, during LA Semanal, recalled that there are only three countries left in Latin America that are required to have this visa to enter the European Union, and the Dominican Republic is one of them, according to Diario Libre.

It is recalled that the Schengen visa is an entry permit to the countries of the European Union for visits of a maximum duration of 90 days in a period of 180 days.

Generally, the visa issued allows you to visit any Schengen State during the same trip, within the period of validity.

The Schengen visa does not allow to stay in a Schengen country for more than 90 days, nor to access a job or to exercise a trade, business or profession.
