What is a Schengen visa?

What 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.

What 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 or embassies.
