Updated Schengen Course

Our Schengen Travel Documents eLearning Course provides practical information on how to systematically check passenger documentation and to ensure that only passengers with adequate, valid documentation are accepted on flights to the Schengen area.

  

New Schengen Area Members


Today, the Schengen Area encompasses most EU countries, except for Cyprus and Ireland. Bulgaria and Romania will become the newest Member States to join the Schengen area as of 31 March 2024, any person crossing the internal air and sea borders will no longer be subject to checks.


Schengen Area – The World’s Largest Visa Free Zone

The Schengen Area, signifies a zone where most 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.
