A Schengen visa is a document issued by the competent authorities to the person concerned to visit the countries of the Schengen area. The Schengen area consists of 26 countries that have allowed free movement of their citizens within this area, as in one country. Of the 26 countries that have entered into the Schengen agreement, 22 are in the EU, the other 4 are in the EFTA.
The Schengen area includes major European countries other than the UK. Countries such as Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus and Ireland will soon sign the agreement.
