What is a Schengen Visa, and how does it work?
A Schengen visa is a short-term visa that allows a person to visit any member of the Schengen Area for tourist or business for up to 90 days.
The Schengen visa is Europe's most popular visa. It allows the holder to enter, freely travel within, and exit the Schengen zone from any Schengen member country. Within the Schengen Zone, there are no border restrictions.
If you intend to study, work, or live in one of the Schengen countries for longer than 90 days, you must apply for a national visa of that European country rather than a Schengen Visa.
In 2019, more than 15 million people utilized their Schengen permits to travel across Europe.
