India has become a booming tourism market for Europe in recent years. India is one of the most remunerative tourism markets in the world. Hereof, Europe had a 17% share of the Indian outbound tourism market in the year 2018.

Schengen Tourist Visa

“The Goal is to die with memories; not Dreams”

Here’s my two cents!

With a single Schengen visa, you can travel to about 26 countries in Europe? Isn’t that liberating?

In Europe, out of 50 countries, 26 countries have signed a Schengen agreement which is a treaty that allows you to travel to all 26 countries in Europe with a single visa. That is the power of the Schengen visa!

Presently, 22 European Union (EU) countries and 4 Non-EU countries comprises the Schengen Region.

EU Countries include Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Czech Republic, Denmark, Switzerland, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Austria, Belgium, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.

Switzerland, Liechtenstein, and Iceland don’t come under European Union but they’re part of the Schengen agreement.

If you have a valid, double, and/or multiple entries Schengen visa on your passport, you can visit Bulgaria, Cyprus, Romania, and Croatia without any additional visa.

“Dare to live the life you’ve always wanted”

You can also visit some of the non-Schengen countries like Colombia, Antigua, Montenegro, Georgia, Barbuda, Kosovo, Gibraltar, Albania, Bosnia, Macedonia, Mexico, Turkey, Serbia, Herzegovina, Sao Tome, and Principe that allow Indian passport holders with a valid Schengen visa to enter for free.

So, you can visit 26 Schengen countries + 15 non-Schengen countries with a Single Schengen visa.

So, what are you waiting for?
