Motion - Inclusive Learning Mobility: Addressing Visa Barriers for Youth


In the European context, young people face visa-related challenges, which vary depending on their specific categorisations. EU citizens within the Schengen Area generally enjoy seamless mobility, while those from non-Schengen countries face barriers both within the EU and abroad. Bureaucratic complexities and prolonged processing times often hinder their participation in exchange opportunities across the region.

This motion aims to raise attention to streamlining visa procedures for young people and promoting accessible and inclusive learning mobility programs across Europe. It seeks to mitigate bureaucratic barriers and ensure equitable opportunities for all, fostering cross-cultural understanding and empowering youth.
