From February 2, get Schengen visa 6 months in advance
From February 2, 2020 , you will be able to apply for a Schengen visa 6 months in advance of your proposed travel date. Currently, you can apply
for a Schengen visa a maximum of three months before. And instead of the usual Schengen visas which are for very limited periods, travelers with a “positive history”
could get them with validities of one to five years.
