Travel to the EU

Citizens from some non-EU countries, including Yemen, are required to hold a visa when travelling to the Schengen Area. Generally, a short-stay visa issued by one of the Schengen States entitles its holder to travel throughout the 26 Schengen States for up to three months within a six-month period. Visas for visits exceeding that period remain subject to national procedures. Schengen visa holders are usually required to enter the Schengen area via the country which has issued the visa. The EU Delegation does not issue visas.


Until the evacuation in 2015, three Member States' consulates issue Schengen visas in Sana'a: France, Italy and Germany. At the moment Yemeni citizens can only travel through Cairo or Amman. Based on bilateral representation arrangements, these countries also issue visas for entry to the following Schengen states:

  • France
  • Germany
  • Italy
  • Austria, Greece, Sweden, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Nederlands
  • Portugal
  • Malta and Spain

Visas for the United Kingdom and Bulgaria, which are currently not part of the Schengen area, can be requested directly to the respective consulates in Sana'a.

More information:

For the countries not mentioned above, requests should be made to the Member States' consulates in other countries in the region.
