The embassy/consulate will issue a Schengen visa to you depending on the nature and purpose of your travel to the Schengen state.
Generally, there are three kinds of Schengen visas-
- Uniform Schengen Visa- The uniform Schengen visa is the most basic form of visa that allows you to travel freely/transit/reside in the desired member state for 90 days in every six-month period.
- The Limited Territorial Validity Visa- This is a limiting visa that allows you to travel only to the Schengen country that has issued the visa or the certain states that are explicitly specified while applying for this visa.
- The National Visa- The National visa is for individuals who are either studying, residing permanently, or working in any one of the Schengen members’ states.
