We are happy to announce that the DEMIG VISA database is now available!

DEMIG VISA is a unique database that tracks annual bilateral travel visa requirements for 237 nationalities in 214 countries over the 1973–2013 period. The database was developed as part of the ERC-funded DEMIG project (2009-2014) at the University of Oxford (FP7/2007-2013)/ERC Grant Agreement 240940). DEMIG aimed at generating new theoretical and empirical insights into the way states and policies shape migration processes in their interaction with other migration determinants.

DEMIG VISA was compiled by the DEMIG team, in particular Simona Vezzoli, Maria Villares Varela and Katharina Natter. We also thank Olinka Caunerová and Anais Resseguïer for their assistance and their commitment to entering and verifying the data.
