FAQ's about Applying for Schengen Visa

What country should issue my Schengen visa?

Your Schengen visa should be issued by the country that will be your longest duration stay.  If you plan to spend equal amounts of time in each Schengen state you visit, then your visa should be issued by the Schengen country you plan to enter first.

Example: if you are staying in Hungary the longest, you should apply Schengen in Hungary embassy.

Can I enter the Schengen Area in a different Schengen country than the one that issued my visa?

There is no general requirement that you must enter the Schengen Area through the country that issued your visa.  Your main destination may be different than your first destination.  To prevent complications, stick to your itinerary as best you can.

How long does it take to get a Schengen visa?

The general guidelines from the EU say it typically takes 1 to 2 weeks. I got mine for just a week for a french visa and 15 days for a Hungarian visa.

What are the Schengen visa insurance requirements?

Your travel medical insurance plan for a Schengen visa must meet these requirements:

  • A minimum coverage of 30,000 Euros (about USD $34,000)

  • Coverage for repatriation for medical reasons

  • Coverage for emergency medical treatment

  • Coverage for expenses resulting from your death coverage for the entire period of your intended stay

  • Valid in all Schengen Area countries

How long is a Schengen visa valid?

Mine is only 15 days of a single entry. It depends on the consul. For a french visa, they gave me 30 days for multiple entries.

The visa procedure takes 15 days.
