    What is a Europe Visa?

    If you are planning to visit the EU, you may need a Europe Visa to cross the borders. This permit is also known as Schengen Visa. It allows eligible individuals to travel freely within the 26 countries that are members of the area.

    The Schengen Visa is a short-stay permit, meaning it only allows travellers to stay up to 90 days in the area for tourism or business purposes

    To learn more about how to visit Europe with a Schengen Visa, you can get in touch with our team of professional immigration lawyers. Call 0333 363 8577 for a free consultation, or use our online contact form.

    We offer immigration advice sessions as face to face appointments at all of our UK offices, or via the phone.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    The Schengen Area is an EU zone that includes 26 different countries. At the moment, it is the largest free travel area in the world, and it covers most of the European countries. However, not all the EU member states are currently part of the Schengen Zone.

    EU citizens can travel, live, work, and study in any Schengen country freely. To benefit from the same freedom, non-EU travelers have to go through the process of Schengen Visa application.

    You are eligible for unrestricted travel in the Schengen Zone if you are:

    • A citizen or a permanent resident of one of the Schengen countries;
    • An EU/EEA citizen;
    • A British overseas national;
    • A non-EU traveler with a valid Schengen Visa.

    You must apply for a Schengen Visa in the country where you reside and submit your form to the consulate of your destination country.

    If you are going to visit multiple Schengen countries, you must apply at the consulate of the destination you plan to visit first.

    It is advisable to submit your Schengen Visa application at least 15 days before the start date of your trip. However, you cannot submit your application form any earlier than three months prior to the time you intend to enter the Schengen Area.

    Along with your Schengen Visa application form, you must submit several documents to meet the requirements set for this visa. This includes:

    • Your Schengen Visa application form completed and signed;
    • Your passport or any valid travel document. It must contain at least two empty pages and be valid for three months after the date you plan to leave the Schengen Area;
    • Two recent photographs;
    • Service fee payment;
    • Travel medical insurance. Your policy should meet specific requirements set by the European Commission.
    • A detailed itinerary of your trip, which includes evidence of your booked accommodations and means of transport.

    Depending on your home country or destination, you may be required to meet further Schengen Visa requirements. For this reason, it is advisable to check with your designated consulate or seek legal guidance from one of our immigration lawyers.

    Applicants who wish to get a Schengen Visa must show evidence of valid travel medical insurance. To be eligible, your chosen policy must meet the following requirements:

    • A minimum coverage of €30,000
    • Complete coverage for expenses which might arise for medical reasons;
    • Coverage for cases of emergency hospital treatment;
    • The policy must cover your entire stay in the Schengen Area;
    • Your travel insurance must be valid in all the Schengen countries, or at the least the ones you are going to visit.

    Europe Visa fees are as follows:

    • Children under the age of 5: No charge
    • Children 6 – 12 years old: €35
    • Travellers 13 years and older: €60
