Welcome to More Europe
Modern diplomacy requires the development of new thinking and skills to face global challenges and changing societies. More Europe is a new approach towards external relations, based on the promotion of fundamental values, two-way dialogue, and the recognition of the role of civil society. 'More Europe' is a campaign which aims to convince politicians and policy makers to place cultural relations – one of the strongest assets that Europe has - in the heart of the EU’s external affairs.
A visa policy is led by the Ministry of the Interior and not by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, which is usually more open and relaxed on this matter. The Ministry of the Interior is much more focused on security issues and sees visas as a tool to regulate entry on its territory.
We, at DG HOME, think that many of the problems that people are confronted with in the Schengen visa system can be remedied by issuing quicker multi-entry visas.
