The EU has suspended visa facilitation with Russia for almost 3 months ago, but a Schengen visa can still be obtained in many European countries.
Spain — almost 109 thousand visas were approved this year, which is almost 3 times more than in 2021. A large percentage of visas fall on the “multishengen”, which cannot but please travelers.
The second place is taken by Italy and France, which also issue visas to Russians, but the rejection rate is almost 2%.
Next come Greece, Hungary and Austria — they mainly open single-entry visas, the rejection rate also balances at 2–3%.
Germany closes the ranking, visa issuance continues, but the requirements for applicants are becoming more and more high, so the rejection rate is increasing.
If we talk about countries outside the Schengen area, then positive changes have affected visas to the UK: the application processing time has been reduced to 2–3 months (previously 5–6), and the percentage of approvals has increased.
