How to apply for a Schengen visa

Information about Schengen visas

Holders of short-stay visas are not automatically entitled to enter Estonia or the Schengen area but must respect the travel restrictions in place. Current travel restrictions can be found on the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs website HERE.

Starting from the 9th of March 2021, all short-term Schengen visa applications shall be submitted at the VFS Global service centres

Types of Schengen visa

Airport transit visa (type A) – is issued for passing through the international transit areas of airports situated on the territory of the Member States.

Short-term visa (type C) – is issued for transit through or an intended stay in the territory of the Member States of a duration of no more than three months in any six-month period from the date of first entry in the territory of the Member States.

If the travel destination includes more than one Schengen member state, the application must be lodged at the representation of the main destination. The main destination is understood to be the destination where you intend to spend the longest time or where the main purpose of the intended journey is carried out.

If you wish to visit several Schengen member states and you are not sure of the state of main destination or plan to spend the equal number of days in each state, the visa must be applied for at the representation of the state through which the visa applicant intends to enter the Schengen area.
