Before you apply

You can only visit Schengen for 90 days during any period of 180 days. 

You can check how many days you may stay in Schengen by using this Schengen visa calculator and entering your entry and exit dates during the last 6 months.

Parents who wish to visit their children for more than 90 days can consider the 9 months permit for parents instead of a Schengen visa.
