MOSCOW, October 18 (Itar-Tass) - Russians will now be able to find out online how long they are allowed to stay in the Schengen states each six months. The corresponding information can be obtained from the website http://ec.europa.eu/dgs/home-affairs/what-we-do/policies/bor ders-and-visas/border-crossing/index_en.htm, where visitors can use a special short-stay calculator for estimating the period of allowed presence under the new rules.
The new regulations, which entered into force on Friday and to some extent modified the existing EU legislation, among other things, re-defined the concept of "short stay" for third-country nationals in the Schengen area.
According to the European Commission, the maximum duration of authorised stay is defined now as "90 days in any 180-day period". Or, in other words, tourists may stay in the Schengen Area up to three months, but at most once in six months.
