STUDY IN EUROPE
The Student Schengen Visa is essentially a Temporary Study Permit for Europe. Thus, students with a student visa for Europe are permitted to stay in Schengen Zone nations for a maximum of three months. You will need to submit an application for a long-stay study visa for the nation in question if the course you are pursuing is longer than six months.
Types of Schengen Student Visas
Schengen Visa Type A
Citizens of non-Schengen nations are permitted to transit through or wait for their connecting aircraft in the international terminal of an airport in a Schengen nation with a type A visa. It is required of anybody making a crossing from one non-Schengen nation to another and who needs to change planes in a Schengen nation’s airport. A type A visa holder is not permitted entry into the aforementioned Schengen nation.
Schengen Visa Type B
The type “C” visa with the conditional “transit” has taken the place of the type “B” visa for trips lasting less than five days.
Schengen Visa Type C
The most frequent Schengen visa is Type C, sometimes referred to as the Short-Stay Schengen Visa. The student is allowed to travel unrestrictedly throughout the Schengen area for up to 90 days during a 180-day term with this educational visa. Checking the Schengen study visa conditions at your university and the country will be helpful for you since certain nations need the Type C Schengen Visa.
Depending on how frequently you want to travel to a specific member nation, Type C is further categorized into three sub-categories.
Single entry visa: One entry per bearer is permitted into each Schengen Zone member state. Even if the visa hasn’t expired when the person departs, it is revoked.
Double entry visa: A single re-entry is allowed with this visa into the specific member state. The visa is null and worthless if the holder departs the nation a second time.
Multiple entry visa: The multiple-entry visa’s name says it all; it entitles the bearer to unlimited travel inside the Schengen Area for up to 90 days within a 180-day period.
Schengen Visa Type D
The national long-stay visa is essentially the Type D Student Schengen Visa. It is intended exclusively for those who have valid visas and want to stay in a Schengen nation for up to a year. However, throughout 180 days, the student is permitted to visit other members of the club for no more than 90 days.
Benefits of Schengen Visa for Students
Because of the additional advantages of the Schengen visa, the majority of students select Europe as their study abroad location. If you obtain a visa for any nation, you are only permitted to enter that nation; however, a Schengen visa allows you entry into all 26 Schengen nations, including Austria, Denmark, Estonia, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.
As a student in one of these nations, you will be granted permission to travel or work there after your studies are done. Students will benefit from having greater opportunities to acquire employment and live more enjoyable lives as a result.
