The updated Schengen visa rules, now allowing frequent Indian travelers the chance to secure multi-year visas lasting up to 5 years, are set to stimulate outbound travel from India to European destinations. Consequently, there is anticipated growth in European travelers opting for extended-duration travel insurance policies.

A Schengen visa is permission to travel within the Schengen Area, comprising 29 European countries that have eliminated many border controls.

With one Schengen visa, you can travel to all Schengen Area countries without requiring individual visas for each country.

Under the newly introduced visa cascade system for India, citizens of the country can now qualify for extended multi-entry Schengen visas lasting two years, provided they have used two visas within the last three years in accordance with the law.

During the validity of these visas, individuals from India can enter and exit Schengen countries multiple times without needing additional visas.
