The Schengen area is a group of countries comprised of 25 European countries. The countries who are part of this group are Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland. A person traveling to any of these countries may be required to have a Shengen visa to be allowed to enter in any of the member countries. A Schengen visa may be obtained from a member country’s embassy or consulate in the travelers own country. If a specific Schengen member country does not have an embassy or consulate there, they can apply at other Schengen member’s embassy or consulate in their country.
Philippine passport holders need to have a Schengen visa if they are traveling to Austria and plan on staying there for no more than 90 days. This is applicable only to Philippine passport holders who are going to Austria as tourists, visiting friends or relatives or on a business-related trip. If they want to go to Austria and stay there for more than 90 days on other matters rather than the previous ones mentioned, they will need to get an Austrian national visa. Both Schengen visa and national visa can be obtained from the Austrian Embassy in Manila. Visa applications can only be done by appointment.
