Schengen visa covers below countries
The rupee falling sharply against major currencies will help foreigners to gain more when they visit India. So, it may impact India in a positive way. On the other hand, Rupee depreciation against US dollar adversely affect the travelers’ outflow to foreign countries. Especially Europe, America and south Asian countries. The expenses of food, hotel reservation, and airfares raised by 15% to 20% and people think twice before planning a foreign trip.
Inversely in case of Rupee appreciation, with cheap air fare rates and less expensive tour packages, Indian tourist tends to visit more places in abroad. It may so happen that a stay in Goa or Kerala may cost more than a same duration stay in Thailand or Denmark; thereby inducing people to chose international destinations over domestic one.
Schengen visa can be applied for below purposes:
- Visiting close friends or relatives
- Cultural and sports events
- Short term study
Types of Schengen visa:
Single entry visa: It allows the visa holder to enter the Schengen zone only once even if they have not completed their stay as per the duration permitted to them.
Double entry visa: Here the visa holder can visit for the second time without exceeding the duration of stay. Visa cannot be used for the third term even if the duration of stay is incomplete.
