Visas: Mobility from African Countries to Schengen Countries: Host Organisations and Artists 
The aim of the questionnaires, coordinated by On the Move, is to collect information about the nature of problems related to visas encountered since June 2019, as well as their related impacts for host organisations and the invited artists and/or culture professionals. The date of June 2019 as a reference period has been used because it is linked to the start of the implementation of the revised Schengen Visa Code. 
Questionnaires are available here
