Schengen Visa Guideline
The Schengen Visa is for leisure, tourism or business and has made travelling between the European member countries much easier and less bureaucratic. Travelling on a Schengen Visa means that the visa holder can travel to any (or all) member countries in the Schengen area using one single visa, avoiding the hassle and expense of obtaining individual visas for each country. This is particularly beneficial for people who wish to visit several European countries on the same trip. The Schengen Visa is a “visitor visa”. It is issued to citizens of countries who are required to obtain a visa before entering Europe.
Duration of a Schengen Visa
A Schengen Visa allows the holder to travel freely within the Schengen countries for a maximum stay of up to 90 days in a 6 month period. It is strongly recommended to plan your journey within the timeframe of the Schengen Visa to avoid having to leave.
