Visa to visit the EU for citizens of Indonesia and Brunei

If you are planning a short stay in an EU country, you may need a visa, depending on your nationality and on the rules in the country you wish to travel to.

Generally, a Schengen visa entitles its holder to travel throughout the 26 Schengen States for up to 90 days in any 180-day period.

Brunei passport holders can enter Schengen countries without a visa for a short stay of up to 90 days. Despite this visa exemption, travellers do not have an automatic right to enter the Schengen area. Border officials in Schengen countries may ask for other supporting documents.

Indonesia passport holders require a visa to enter the Schengen area. To apply, please check with the embassy of the EU country which will be your main destination. If it is not clear what the main destination country is, apply at the embassy of the country where you will have the longest visit. If the visits in different Schengen countries are for the same amount of time, the first destination will be the determining factor.

A Schengen visa is not for stays longer than 90 days, or if you plan to get a job or set up a business, trade or profession.
