The year 2022 saw a striking increase in visa requests as citizens from many different nations showed a strong desire to cross borders. Kuwait, Qatar, and Kosovo were among the nations that stood out in this respect.

According to data, Kuwaiti, Qatari, and Kosovoese nationals filed the most visa requests per person.

Out of every 100,000 people, 6,891 in Kosovo, 3,426 in Kuwait, and 2,939 in Qatar sought for a visa.

According to Schengen data, 79,859 Qataris applied for uniform visas, while 53,870 did so for multiple entry visas. Almost 3 million people live in Qatar, and 2.9% of them requested a Schengen visa.
