Schengen Visa & 20 year validity Passports
Posted on December 1, 2010
Schengen Visas will not be stamped on passports issued prior to 2001. 20 year validity passports are being returned as the Bar Code is not visible.
Applicants who want a Schengen visa need to have 10 year validity passports, should be valid for 3 months beyond the duration of your extended stay & should have a minimum of 2 blank pages.
If your passport has a 20 year validity period & you want to travel to Europe, you will be required to apply for a new passport immediately
