Schengen Visa Application Requirements
When applying for a Schengen Visa in order to travel to one or more of the Schengen Zone countries, there are some requirements one has to establish prior to the application. If you are planning to travel to more than one Schengen country its best if you apply at the Embassy/ Consulate of the country you will be staying at the most, regarding the residing days. Once you are issued a multiple entry visa you are able to travel to all of the Schengen Zone countries for the time permitted on the visa.

When applying for the visa you should bear in mind that you have to personally hand the required documents once you’ve made an appointment at the embassy/consulate. It is always recommendable to arrange the appointment at least 15 days prior to your departure since that is the estimated time needed for the bureaucratic process taking part in the corresponding institution.

Every Schengen country shares more or less the same requirements in issuing a visa to the needy party. However, there are slim differences here and there, depending on the consulate/embassy on the required documents additional to the main identification papers and your current economic status.

A unified exemplar of the requested documents with the additional information is meticulously described and listed below:
1. The application form must be fully completed and signed in the corresponding blanks.
2. One photo is to be attached; the photo must have a passport format, full-face capture, and a light background. The photo must be recently taken.
3. The passport as well as all the copies of your previous visas, valid for at least 3 months prior to your departure is required. The passport must have at least two blank pages.
4. Round trip reservation or itinerary with dates and flight numbers specifying entry and exit from the Schengen area. You can use the visa consultation services like this one. These guys can handle most of your visa requirements such as flight itineraries, hotel reservations along with free consultation over email.
5. The travel health insurance policy is to be secured, covering any medical emergency with hospital care and travel back to ones native country due to medical motives. This health insurance policy has to cover expenses up to 30,000 euros, the sum depending on the residing days, and also it has to be valid in all Schengen countries. The health insurance policy must be purchased before picking up the visa and if your visa is refused you can cancel it!
6. Proof of accommodation for the whole duration of the intended stay in the Schengen area.
7. Proof of sufficient means of subsistence during the intended stay in the Schengen area. Varies from country to country.

For a minor there are a few additional documents requested by the corresponding institution stated as follows:
