In order to visit a country in the Schengen area, Indians and other nationalities are required to obtain a visa prior to the travel. The visa application requires Indians as well as the nationalities of most other countries to fill in the visa application form and complete the requisites to obtain the visa. Documents such as the passport, travel health insurance, cover letter stating the purpose of the travel, flight itinerary, accommodation details, proof of sufficient funds, and other documents are essential while applying for a Schengen Visa.
The visa application is not processed until the requisite visa fee is paid. The application for a Schengen visa requires the applicants to pay a non-refundable mandatory visa fee while submitting the application.
