The one very common question people applying for Schengen visa often ask is the difference between single and multiple-entry visas. Single-entry allows only one-time entry for a certain time period, while multiple-entry Schengen visa gives the freedom to the holder to make as many entries and exits as he wants.
According to Times Live, there are 25 signatories to the Schengen agreement and it allows freedom to travel in Europe. There are different kinds of Schengen visa, which includes single-entry, double-entry as well as multiple-entry.
With a single-entry visa, a person can enter a Schengen territory only one time for a specific period of time. If he or she is holding a double-entry visa, it will apply the same rules that of single-entry visa. However, the only difference, in this case, will be that the Schengen visa will expire only on the second visit.
In case a person holds a multiple-entry Schengen visa, he can enter as many Schengen countries he wishes many times until the validity expires. As per Immi Help, the multiple Schengen visa holders can stay at any Schengen nation for long.
A multiple-entry visa can be valid up to a year. If the visa entries show “02”, this means the holder has the liberty to visit only two countries. In case it shows “MULT”, it means the person can visit more than two nations in the Schengen area.
Over the last few years, there’s been a sharp increase in demand for Schengen visa. In 2017, Schengen countries witnessed the maximum visa applicants from Russia, China, Turkey and India. Europe is one of the most favorite destinations and it soon became a hot favorite for many Indians.
