 The 5-year multiple-entry Schengen visa, accessible from India, permits travel to any Schengen nation. Eligibility extends to people who have previously held and properly utilised a multiple-entry visa valid for at least two years within the previous three years. Within a five-year time, this visa grants unlimited entries into 27 European countries, given the 90/180-day cap is adhered to.

A Schengen visa serves as a travel permit allowing holders to easily visit and cross the Schengen Area, containing 27 European countries where internal border controls have been abolished. This visa facilitates entry, departure, and travel between member nations without the requirement for passport inspections at their common borders. Simplifying travel across the Schengen Area, it includes renowned places like France, Germany, Italy, Spain, among others.
 

A Schengen visa enables transit or short visits of up to 90 days within a 180-day time in the Schengen region. While any Schengen state recognizes a visa granted by another, registration is required with the country marked as your main target. If visiting multiple Schengen countries without a clear main goal, it is recommended to apply from the region of first entry.

The updated Visa Code puts simpler requirements on visa users across Schengen offices, consulates, and visa centres. Adhering to the 90/180 rule allows multiple entries, allowing stays not to exceed 90 days in a 180-day term.
