Schengen VISA history and comments about the historical Green Card

Schengen VISUM / VISA history and the EU principle of free movement as a private person and/or as an employee right for the enterprises

The free movement of individuals is a fundamental right guaranteed by the institution of EU citizens. It gives every citizen the right to travel, work and live in any EU country without any formality.

The Schengen cooperation improves and also restricts this freedom by giving citizens the opportunity to cross internal borders without being subjected to border controls.

The border-free Schengen area ensures free movement for more than 400 million EU citizens, and also to many non-EU citizens, businessmen, tourists or other persons wishing legally to be present within the EU.

The first Member States were: Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands. Now there are 26 Schengen countries – 22 EU members and 4 non-EU.

The four are Iceland and Norway (since 2001), Switzerland (since 2008) and Liechtenstein (since 2011). After the first five came Italy (1990), Portugal and Spain (1991), Greece (1992), Austria (1995) and Denmark, Finland and Sweden in 1996.

Nine more EU countries joined in 2007, after the EU’s eastward enlargement in 2004. They are Hungary, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Malta, Poland, Slovakia, and Slovenia. Only six of the 28 EU countries outside the Schengen zone, namely: Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Ireland, Romania, and the UK.
