Pre-Pandemic Visa Statistics

The issuance of Schengen visas witnessed an unexpected rise from 2017 to 2019. 35.1 million Visas were issued during this three-year period, and France alone contributed 9.7 million, which is equal to 27.8 percent of the total. This three year has been noticed as the highest visa issuance time since 2013 when the European embassy collectively granted 12.3 million visas.

The pandemic in 2020 reduced visa issuance unexpectedly by 3.8 million. In spite of this, France was the only country that maintained its superiority by issuing 25% of all visas in 2021 and 28.4% in 2020, exceeding other European countries.
