EU offers a range of business visas designed to facilitate international trade, investments, and entrepreneurial ventures within its member states. These visas serve as gateways for non-EU citizens looking to engage in business activities, establish partnerships, or explore new markets within the EU
A Schengen Business Visa is issued to individuals traveling to one or more Schengen countries for professional purposes such as attending meetings, conferences, negotiating contracts, exploring business opportunities, or engaging in trade activities.
The Schengen Business Visa allows a maximum stay of 90 days within a 180-day period, offering flexibility for business-related activities.
Depending on the applicant's travel needs and the issuing authority's discretion, a Schengen Business Visa can be issued for either single-entry, double-entry, or multiple entries. A single-entry visa permits a one-time entry, while a double-entry allows two entries, and a multiple-entry visa grants unrestricted entries during its validity.
The processing time for a Schengen Business Visa varies depending on the country and the individual circumstances of the applicant. On average, it can range from a few days to several weeks. It is advisable to apply well in advance of your intended travel dates.
The Schengen Business Visa is typically issued with a validity period that covers the expected duration of the business activities. This period ranges from a few days to several months, depending on the nature of the business and the decision of the consulate or embassy.
In most Schengen countries, a Schengen Business Visa does not grant the holder the right to work or engage in gainful employment. For business-related activities that involve work, a separate work permit or visa may be required, depending on the country's regulations
Applicants are required to have travel insurance that covers at least €30,000 for medical emergencies and repatriation. This insurance should be valid for the entire duration of the intended stay in the Schengen Area.
Schengen Business Visas are typically not extendable. If you require a longer stay, you may need to apply for a national visa from the specific Schengen country you intend to stay in. This would usually be for individuals intending to engage in long-term business activities or take up employment within a specific Schengen country.
