Response to consultation on Schengen visa
Pearle* welcomes the initiative to review the procedures of the visa code, but stresses that this is only a part of the total picture, when engaging third-country nationals in the live performance sector. It concerns third-country nationals who come for professional reasons. Besides the procedure itself for the application of the visa, the European organizations hosting the third-country nationals are often confronted with the additional complications of work and residence permits.
It is for this reason that Pearle* strongly urges the European Commission to develop a global approach to temporary economic migration, which takes all aspects into account. A further harmonization, a better coordination of the rules, simplification and guidelines, in particular for highly mobile workers, is therefore recommended.
