    Also wanted to share new learning: if you are coming into Schengen territory, your passport will be stamped on the first airport you go into. (even if it's just a transit/connection between your actual intended arrival airport)

    Example: MNL-> Paris via Amsterdam transit. You'll get stamped in Amsterdam :)

    Thanks for the info! The last time I was in europe we traveled via car through multiple countries. This would be the first time I'd be flying between schengen states so I was worried they'd ask why my sponsors aren't with me.  Thanks again!

    Thanks for the info! The last time I was in europe we travelled via car through multiple countries. This would be my first time flying to another schengen state, so I was worried they'd question why my sponsors weren't me. Planning on flying to Iceland from Amsterdam by the way. Thanks!

    Anyone here who have tried tours4fun Tours?

  • Hi guys! Applying for a tourist visa via the French Embassy. 

    We are traveling as a couple and are looking at travel insurance providers. Do we buy the travel insurance individually or as a group? Thank you!

    Hi! Wala ng interview for Schengen Visa Application sa Dutch Embassy. Through VFS Global yung submission ng requirements.

    Personal tip ko lang: Ensure to complete and provide additional documentation as much as you can to prove your rootedness. :)

    Hi! Individual application will do. The itinerary and bookings will show naman na you will be together sa trip. Good luck! :)
