Schengen Visa Fees

Schengen Visa Fees

When applying for a Schengen Visa there is a non-refundable mandatory visa fee every applicant must pay.

The Schengen visa costs vary depending on the type of visa and age of the applicant, and some other exceptions.

The Schengen visa fee can be paid in the designated consulate/embassy via cash, debit or credit card. However, some consulates may not allow you to pay by credit card.

The Schengen visa application costs include the visa fees payable at the corresponding embassy/consulate when applying.

The applicable visa fee in USD (US Dollar) is as per the current exchange rate. It is subject to change without notice.

Although these fees are static and unchangeable until the Schengen members decide otherwise altogether, there are some categories exempt from paying this amount.

The visa fees may also be waived for participants aged 25 years or fewer in seminars, conferences, and sports, cultural or educational events, organized by non-profit organizations. The decision will be made case by case according to the relevance of the event.

Again, in case the visa is denied there is no refund of the money paid.


Types of Schengen Visas

Types of Schengen Visas

– Uniform Schengen Visa

Category A: Airport Transit Visa: this is needed when traveling through an airport within the Schengen area.

Category C: Short-term Visa: this is your standard tourist visa which is valid for up to 90 days. Your short-term visa will also include how many times you may re-enter countries within the Schengen area.

This includes single entry, double and multiple entries.

Other than a tourist visa, there are many other types of short-term visas. These include business, medical treatment, religious purposes, sports competition, conference, government delegation, and study and invitation visas.


– Limited Territory Visa

This Schengen visa allows the holder to only travel within the country/countries that the visa has been issued to.

You will not be allowed entry into any other country in the Schengen area. This type of visa is usually only issued in some type of emergency, limiting the user to a specific country or area.

– Long-term visa

You may also apply for a long-term visa if you are going to be reunited with family living in one of the Schengen countries, have a family member that is an EU citizen and plan to visit for an extended period of time, as well as if you have been granted a job in the Schengen area.


What Do You Need to apply?

You will need to obtain all of your required documents to start the process of applying for your Schengen visa.

Without all the relevant documents, the process will be delayed so it is best to get everything together at once. You will need:

1. A completed Schengen application form

2. Valid passport (with 2 consecutive clean pages) and a full-color copy of data page

3. Two passport photos

4. Bank statements for the last three months

5. Bank details

6. Hotel reservations in your choice of country

7. Medical insurance

8. Round trip flight reservation

9. Evidence of a need to return to Nigeria (letter from employer, etc.)

10. Color copies of all previous Schengen visas (if applicable)

11. Employment details of the last three months
