The Schengen Zone
Which countries are part of Schengen?
There are currently 26 countries that make up the Schengen zone including:
Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
What does the Schengen zone mean for travel?
If you hold a visa for a country within the Schengen zone then you are able to pass freely between the borders of all other member countries, which makes travel pretty easy in the area.
As a non-Schengen resident you are able to remain within the zone for up to 90 days in every 180, then you must leave the area. Overstaying can result in fines or bans on re-entry in future.
