Sangong law firm is going to give you a brief insight into the topic taking into account the so-called multiple entry visa.
Three types of visa exist at present:
A – Airport transit visa
C – Schengen-Visa
D – National Visa for stays exceeding 90 days
The Schengen visa is a residence permit as defined in the Residence Act. Unlike national residence permits, the Schengen-Visa applies international law, in particular Regulation (EC) No 810/2009 (“Visakodex”).
For a successful application, additional knowledge is required in the fields of the Schengen Implementing Convention, Schengen Borders Code, the EU Visa Regulation, as well as other regulations.
While the National Visa basically prepares a National residence permit (employment, self-employment, study, etc.) with stays of more than 90 days, the Schengen-Visa allows only short-term stays of up to 90 days during a period of 180 days.
Permanent visa or multiple entry visa
Schengen-Visas can be issued for a longer period of six months to five years by the diplomatic representations abroad. One speaks in this connection also of a permanent visa or multiple entry visa.
The permanent visa or multiple entry visa, however, does not allow a stay of more than 90 days. Thus, it remains that visa holders are obliged to leave after this period. However, it is possible to re-enter after a further 90 days without a corresponding application, possibly over a period of up to five years.
Permanent visa or multiple entry visa offer considerable advantages for persons, who are frequently in Germany or in the Schengen area for business reasons. Thus, a repeated application over a longer period is unnecessary and the business activities can be more flexibly exercised to the success and benefit of the company in the respective Schengen country.
Besides, a permanent visa or multiple entry visa is also available for persons who have family relations with the country of the desired entry. For this group of people, the application, which is often seen as annoying, is no longer required before each intended entry.
The German embassies abroad also benefit. The allocation of permanent visa or multiple entry visa relieves the administration. Instead of processing many Schengen-Visa applications over a longer period, the authority must only process one application.
Nevertheless, it must be clearly stated that the German foreign representatives will only agree to issue a permanent visa or multiple entry visa, if the applicant has clear and comprehensible reasons.
