Useful information on traveling from Turkmenistan to the EU and for studying there.

Visa

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

For 26 European countries in what is called the 'Schengen area', a Schengen visa is issued for short stays, allowing its holder to travel and stay there for up to 90 days in any 180-day period. The 26 countries are:

  • 22 EU countries: Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.
  • 4 non-EU countries: Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.

The Delegation of the European Union does not issue visas.
