Visa & Regulations



As Homeshare program is not a work contract, VISA regulations to be applied do not vary from a situation where you wish to travel abroad  to work or to study. Therefore, you need to know Visa requirements if you pretend to become a Homesharer out of your country.

For instance, there are no Visa requirements to move or to live in any of the 27 countries members of the EU if you are holding any of the EU member passport.

The European Union is composed of 27 sovereign Member States: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus  the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
