    Is it true that CR would be part of the schengen states by 2008??

    If so, can expats with permanent residency status in CR move freely inside other schengen states without the need for visas?

    Czech republic is set to implement it on 31 December 2007 (overland borders) and 29 March 2008 (airports). Those dates still could change, thought.

    Citizens of non-EU, non-EEA countries who wish to visit Europe as tourists, and who require a visa to enter the Schengen area, are simply required to get a common Schengen Visa from the Embassy/Consulate of the Schengen country they intend to visit first. After this, they may visit any or all of the Schengen countries as tourists or for business without hindrance. They are not required to get separate visas for all the (Schengen) European countries they wish to visit.

    Thanx eso for your reply.

    I am aware of how Schengen system works, and my question is this:
    I have a permanenet residency in CR. Now, if I want to go to Germany or Austria, I need a visa. How would this change after December 31, 2007?
