Traveling With A Schengen Visa
In June 1985, seven EU countries signed the Schengen Agreement. This enabled the removal of internal border controls between the Schengen member states, therefore allowing easy movement within the European Schengen area. It also harmonized the visa obligations between all Schengen member states, thus making it so much easier for tourists, students or travelers on business to visit multiple European countries for a period of less than three months.
As of date, there are 25 member countries including Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
Traveling in Europe has definitely become easier, thanks to the introduction of the Schengen Visa.
About The Schengen Visa
The Schengen Visa is issued to any foreign citizen whose nationality requires a Schengen Visa. This enables the passport holder to enter freely into any of the 25 member countries without obtaining a separate visa for each country.
This only applies to individuals who are looking to visit one or more Schengen countries either as a tourist, a student or a traveler on business, for a period of no longer than three months. If you intend to stay in any of the Schengen countries for a period of longer than three months, the Schengen visa no longer applies.
