Another Facebook group (180 days Visa Free) drafted a working paper:
“In October2020 the 180 days visa free campaign proposed that the Schengen 90/180 days rule be amended to 180 days in any rolling 360 days. This would nullify many of the disadvantages of the 90/180 days rule without disruptive changes to the basic Schengen principles. The working paper can be viewed here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/11CIvRu ... p=drivesdk
The paper was sent to Michel Barnier, President Van dear Leyen, Guy Verhofstadt and the president of the European Parliment, David Sassoli MEP on 18.10.20. We await their response, but recognise that they are dealing with other pressing matters.”
So although it’s not a done deal, it’s good to know that there are various groups campaigning for change.
