Explore the dataset

You can search the information in the database in four different ways:

Mobility Barriers Index

Explore trends in the Mobility Barries Index. Across all countries - taking into consideration both access to consular services, visa requirements and visa issuing practices - where are the barriers to movement the highest and the lowest?


Visa requirements

Explore variation in which sending countries figure on visa lists. What nationals are required to obtain a visa before travelling to Europe? Are permit requirements more frequent now than previously?


Visa issuing practices

Explore patterns in the visa-issuing practices abroad. How many visas are applied for, issued and refused? How likely is it that requests are turned down? Are the rules tightly enforced?


Consular services

Explore differences in access to consular services. How extensive is the consular coverage in different sending countries? In what countries is it not even possible to hand in visa applications?
