What is a Schengen Visa?
A Schengen Visa is a short-term European visa. This type of Visa enables the holder to travel freely throughout the Schengen area. The visa, itself is issued by one of the Schengen nations. That is to say, you can visit any of the Schengen countries for up to 90 days during a 180-day period.
The Schengen Visa is the most common visa in Europe. In order words, it entitles the holder to enter, travel freely within, and exit the Schengen area from any Schengen member country. There are no border controls within the Schengen zone.
The following is the standard set of requirements:
Application form printed and signed
Proof of sufficient finances
Travel medical insurance
There are various sorts of visas that will apply to your trip to Liechtenstein, depending on the reason for your visit. Whether you intend to visit, study, or work in Liechtenstein and live there permanently, you will need to apply for a Schengen to Liechtenstein visa.
A visa to Liechtenstein can be applied for up to 90 days before your trip.
- A passport or other travel document that is valid. Issued within the last ten years and valid for at least three months beyond the day you plan to depart Liechtenstein (and the Schengen zone).
- If you are subject to the Liechtenstein visa regime, you will need a visa.
- Other supporting documents, such as an invitation letter from a host, proof of housing, or a round-trip ticket, may be requested.
A national visa is a sort of visa that allows you to enter a single country. No such thing as a Schengen national visa exists. National visas and Schengen visas are two different types of visas.
National Visas are classified as “long stay” (Type D) visas, as opposed to “short stay” Schengen visas (Type-C). A Schengen visa and a National visa differ primarily in two ways:
1) A Schengen visa gives you entrance to the Schengen area and can be used in any of the Schengen countries. A national visa, on the other hand, grants you exclusive access to a single country.
2) The duration of a Schengen visa is restricted to 90 days, whereas a National Visa might be valid for considerably longer.
Liechtenstein, for example, is a Schengen country, but if you want to remain longer than 90 days, youll need a national visa rather than a Schengen visa.
Please keep in mind that national visa charges vary per country. Your visa fees should be available at the consulate of the country to which you are applying for a national visa.

Is it necessary for me to hand over my passport in order to obtain a Liechtenstein visa?
Yes. You must give your original passport rather than a copy. Your passport will be stamped with the Liechtenstein visa, which will become one of your passport pages. Without your original passport, your visa request cannot be processed. Because your passport is so valuable, we strongly advise you to send it via a secure way such as a guaranteed postal service or courier.
This depends on a number of things such as whether or not you have had a Schengen visa in the past or how many countries you intend to visit. Generally you first Schengen visa will be issued for the duration of your stay. Future applications may be granted for multiple entry for a number of years.
