by Seek Academy Training Institute

Student visa Europe is more commonly known as the student Schengen visa. Schengen is nothing but the area in 26 European countries which allow the free movement of people. These countries follow common rules, have a common currency, and a common judicial system as well. Some of the major countries in the Schengen area are; Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

Seek Consultants specialize in Student Visa Europe/ student Schengen visa. The student Schengen visa permits a student to visit any of the 26 countries for the purpose of studies. However, the Schengen visa is valid for 3 months only. If the course duration is longer than that, the student has to apply for that country’s visa at the embassy.

The student visa application must be submitted to the consulate of the respective country in your country of residence. The right time to apply for the Schengen visa is 4 weeks prior to departure. However, at the earliest, students can apply 3 months prior to their journey.  At the latest, the application can be made 15 days prior to the journey. It is advised that you don’t wait for the last day to apply. Applying prior will give the visa department enough time for processing.

Usually, it takes around 15 days to get the student Schengen visa. However, in some special cases, it may take a bit over than 30 days. The Schengen visa is valid only for 3 months. If the course duration is longer than that, the student has to apply for a long stay visa.

Normal student Schengen visa prohibits students from working in the Schengen region but the long-stay student Schengen visas enable students to work for a fixed number of hours per week. Schengen visa is issued to an individual student and it prohibits them from bringing any family members along. Family members may apply for a visiting family member visa or tourist visa.
