Schengen Area – The World’s Largest Visa Free Zone

The Schengen Area, signifies a zone where 27 European countries, abolished their internal borders, for the free and unrestricted movement of people, in harmony with common rules for controlling external borders and fighting criminality, by strengthening the common judicial system and police cooperation.

Schengen States apply common rules to people entering the area, including rules on document checks and visa requirements.

Airlines are responsible for ensuring that the passengers they carry have all required travel documents in place to enter the Schengen area. However, many passengers that intend to access the Schengen area are still using improper or invalid travel documentation.

Fines Worth Millions of Euros Every Year

Whenever an airline is found guilty, a fine of between 3.000 to 5.000 EUR, per passenger travelling with improper documentation, may be imposed. The cumulative cost of fines per year for airlines may be counted in millions of euros.
