Schengen Visa: One Pass For 26 Countries



5  European countries came together on the 14th day of June in 1985  to form  and conceptualize “ The Schengen Agreement” . Spearheaded by Germany, France, Luxemburg , Belgium and Netherlands,  all member states of this newly form state union will  have  free trade access and a uniform visa. It means that if a person has a valid visa in one of the member states he/she can freely move around the Schengen area without securing additional  visa from each of the other member countries. It works similar to that of the United States of America.  Schengen, for those who don’t know yet, is a small town in Luxemburg and not some kind of jumbled words.



It is important to note that not all European countries are members of The Schengen and not all Schengen states are under the European Union.  IF that’s not confusing enough , remember that   not all Schengen state territories automatically  become part of  the  Schengen .  To make it simplier  here is  a list of the countries that are members of the Schengen.  Only on these nations that the free trade and open borders is observed.

To visit all of these European countries  in one go make sure that you possesses a Multiple Entry Visa:

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

I hope this can help you better  plan your next European trip and avoid any inconveniences.
