Where and how to apply (for a Schengen visa) wrote:You must lodge the application for a Schengen visa at the Consulate of the country that you intend to visit, or – if you intend to visit more than one Schengen State, the Consulate of the country where you will spend the longest period.
If you intend to visit several Schengen States and the stays will be of equal length, you must apply at the Consulate of the country whose external borders you will cross first when entering the Schengen area.
The application must, in principle, be submitted to the Consulate at least 15 days before the intended journey and cannot be lodged earlier than six months before the start of the intended journey. You may have to book an appointment before lodging the application.
If you are married to an EEA citizen of the EEA member-state that you are not entering the Schengen zone in AND are either accompanying or joining the EEA citizen, they you can be granted a visa at the border.
I am not sure of this and will leave it to others to advise further on this point.
Looking here though, looks like UK issues Travel docs are treated same as British passports.secret.simon wrote: ↑Thu Apr 22, 2021 11:22 amI suspect that you would need a Schengen visa to travel to the EU now.
Who requires or does not require a Schengen visa is determined by the person's citizenship, not the country of issue of the Travel Document.
While the UK was a part of the EU, UK issued travel documents were likely recognised by other EEA member-states as the UK was a fellow member-state.
Now that it is not, your travel document would be assessed the same as one issued by the US, for instance.
So, from that list, I would say that you can travel visa-exempt to certain specific Schengen member-states (Bulgaria, Germany, Iceland, Finland, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Norway, Switzerland, Hungary, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Slovenia and Croatia). I am not sure what happens if you enter another Schengen member-state not on the list above from there (such as if you enter Belgium from the Netherlands or if you travel from Germany to France, for instance).According to a table compiled by the European Commission, some Schengen countries grant visa-free entry to refugees or stateless people who reside in Ireland or in an Annex II country/territory:
Austria, Cyprus, Estonia, Greece, Latvia: none
Belgium: refugees in Ireland, United States
Bulgaria, Germany, Iceland: Ireland, all Annex II
Croatia: Andorra, Canada, Ireland, Japan, Monaco, San Marino, Taiwan, United Kingdom, United States, Vatican City
Czech Republic, Malta, Poland: refugees in Ireland
Denmark, Portugal, Romania, Sweden: Ireland
Finland, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Norway, Switzerland: Ireland, United Kingdom
France: Andorra, Ireland, Monaco
Hungary: all Annex II; refugees in Ireland
Italy: Ireland, all Annex II except Taiwan
Luxembourg, Netherlands: United Kingdom; refugees in Ireland, United States
Slovakia: Hong Kong, Macau; refugees in Andorra, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Israel, Malaysia, Mexico, Monaco, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Palau, Panama, Paraguay, Singapore, United States, Uruguay, Vatican City, Venezuela
Slovenia: Andorra, Argentina, Australia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Macau, Mexico, Moldova, Monaco, Montenegro, New Zealand, North Macedonia, Peru, San Marino, Serbia, Singapore, South Korea, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States, Uruguay, Vatican City, Venezuela
Spain: Ireland, Taiwan; stateless people in United Arab Emirates
That "Yes" is followed by a (1), which stands for "Subject to reciprocity and overall EU-UK relations".
