How do I apply for a multiple entry visa?

A visitor visa can be issued for one, two or multiple entries. A person holding a multiple-entry visa may visit the Schengen area an unlimited number of times within the visa's validity period.

The first time you get a visitor visa it is usually issued for one entry. If you visit the Schengen area often or have a particular need, you can be granted a visa for multiple entries. If you have a particular need for a visa for multiple entries, you must document this in your visa application.

The application form and application fee are the same for visas for one, two or multiple entries.

You cannot stay in the Schengen area for more than a total of 90 days within a period of 180 days. If you are staying in the Schengen area for more than 90 days during a period of 180 days, this may have negative consequences for future visa applications.

We do not know whether you will receive a multiple-entry visa until you have submitted a visa application. We make an individual assessment in each case.
