The Schengen Visa, which allows visa-free travel to over 29 European countries, is set to become more expensive. Starting from 11 June 2024, applicants will face higher fees for this essential travel document.

The European Commission announced an increase in Schengen visa fees beginning June 11, 2024. Slovenia’s Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs has confirmed that the fee for adult applicants will rise from €80 to €90. 

"Additionally, the fee for children aged six to twelve will increase from €40 to €45. For countries not cooperating with the EU on the readmission of their irregularly staying citizens, visa fees could surge to €135 or even €180," the ministry said in a statement.
