Schengen is the region including the members of the European Union and members of the European Free Trade Association.
As these countries have visa-free travel policy among themselves, citizens of union member states can only travel within the region with their ID or passports. If people outside the region also want to travel to these countries, they can start the visa procedure for member countries that they would like to visit. There are also countries that are members of the European Union that are not in the Schengen area such as Ireland, the United Kingdom, Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, and Cyprus.
Schengen is also a type of visa issued by authorized institutions allowing travel within union-affiliated countries. You can enter Schengen countries with this visa type. Depending on the conditions, more than one country can also be visited with this visa.
A Schengen visa can be obtained through the representatives of the destination country. Visa applicants can complete the process after collecting the necessary documents requested by the relevant institution and then create an appointment online. After making an appointment at the intermediary agency's website for a Dutch visa, the only thing you need to do is to complete all the documents before the application.
Once you have got the Schengen visa, you can travel among the union member states within your visa period. The important point here is that the first entry must be made from the country from which the visa was obtained. You can then visit other countries. For example, you want to make an Austrian-Belgium-Czech Republic tour and apply for a Schengen visa through Austria. Once you have entered Austria, you can transfer to both countries with your passport.
Fees can change per year and by the type of the visa.
|6 to 12 year olds||40 Euro|
|0 to 6 year olds||Free
|Nationals of countries that have a visa-facilitation agreement with the European Union||35 Euro
Although the requirements can vary from country to country, the documents requested by the member states of the European Union are generally the same.
