is a Schengen visa?
The Schengen visa covers travel between its 25 member countries
(22 European Union states and 3 non-EU members). Traveling
on a Schengen visa means that the visa holder can travel
to any (or all) member countries using one single visa,
thus avoiding the hassle and expense of obtaining individual
visas for each country. This is particularly beneficial
for persons who wish to visit several European countries
on the same trip. The Schengen visa is a “visitor
visa” and is issued to citizens of countries who are
required to obtain a visa before entering Europe.
is a visa application centre?
It is just a local firm that officially provides the service
of processing applications of visas and redirecting it to
the closest consulates depending on the location. If you
choose to apply through a visa application centre, then
you only contact this firm, and you collect your passport
also from this centre without having to visit the consulates
