The Schengen Area is an area comprising 26 European countries that have officially relaxed all passport and all other types of border control at their mutual borders. The area mostly functions as a single jurisdiction for international travel purposes, with a common visa policy.

All nationals of third countries, which have not yet reached a liberalization agreement with the Schengen member states, need to obtain this travel authorisation prior to their arrival in Europe
