Going on A European Vacation? Know about Schengen Visa First


Countries in Europe are very famous for their beauty and civilization, making them attractive tourist destinations. However, before vacationing to some parts of the country, you must prepare a special visa, named Schengen Visa.

A Schengen visa is a special visa for tourist or business visits to “Schengen Area” countries. If you want to visit some countries in that area, you need a Schengen visa.

There are 26 countries in the Schengen area, including Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein.

In addition, there are also Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

Schengen visa holders are free to travel around any of these countries for a period of time, which is 90 days within a period of 6 months.

If you want to continue your studies, work or permanent living for more than 90 days, the Schengen visa is not applicable. You need to apply for a national visa from a European country. 

In addition, there are several types of Schengen Visa : 

For short-term visit needs, the Schengen Visa required can be : transit visa, tourism visa, business visa, visa to visit family or friends, visa for cultural and sports activities, official visit visa, research visa, or visa for medical reasons. 

Meanwhile, there are two types of Schengen Visa issued by Embassies or Consulates:

1.Single-entry visa

A one-time entry visa to a Schengen country for the holder. If the holder has already left a country in the Schengen area, the same visa cannot be used again.

2. Multiple-entry visa

Visa holders can travel back and forth to both Schengen and non-Schengen areas. The multiple entry visa type is valid for 90 days within a 6-month period for a duration of 1 year, 3 years, or 5 years.
