The Schengen Agreement, intended to remove immigration restrictions on travel within all the signatory member countries’ territories, became effective on March 26, 1995. This culminated in the creation of a borderless zone known as the ‘Schengen Area.’ As a result, it is possible for citizens of the signatories of that agreement to travel between the countries referred to above without having checked their records. A ‘Schengen Visa’ is, however, required for travelers who need visas for one or more Schengen States to which they are ticketed and whose final destination is a Schengen State for which no visa is required. Also, transit without a visa (TWOV) is impossible if the Schengen country for which a visa is required is one of the next travel or transit countries since the traveler enters the Schengen region or borderless territory. This means that travelers from states that require a visa for all Schengen States and Travelers from states that require a visa for one or more Schengen States to which they are ticketed always need a visa. Travelers should acquire Schengen visas before they arrive in the Schengen territory.
All travelers must hold a visa except the following:

Citizens of Austria, Cyprus, Belgium, Czech Republic, Estonia, Denmark, Finland, France, Bulgaria, Germany, Hungary, Greece, Republic of Ireland, Italy, Iceland, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Malta, Lithuania, Netherlands, Portugal, Poland, Romania, Norway, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Sweden, Spain, Switzerland.
