Citizens and residents in Oman, starting from next month, will have to pay more for Schengen visas while traveling to European countries.
According to the statement put up by the Schengen visa application managers in the country, as of February 2, 2020, the Schengen visa fee per person for a Short Stay Visa will increase from 60 to 80 euros or the equivalent amount in the local currency. For children between 6-12 years old, the visa fee will increase to 40 euros or equivalent.
It is to be noted that the change in the fee structure will be observed across the globe for those passport holders who require a Schengen visa to enter Europe.
The Schengen zone includes the 26 countries that have signed the Schengen agreement, and each member country of the Schengen zone can issue Schengen visas.
