Guide to Registering for a Schengen Visa as an Expat Kitas Holder

For expatriates residing in Indonesia under the KITAS, the prospect of exploring Europe is an exciting opportunity. However, before embarking on this journey, it's essential to understand the process of registering for a Schengen visa. The Schengen Area comprises 26 European countries that have abolished passport control at their mutual borders, allowing for seamless travel within the region. This article aims to provide a comprehensive guide for expat Kitas holders on the steps involved in obtaining a Schengen visa.

Understanding the Schengen Visa: The Schengen visa is a short-stay visa that permits its holder to travel within the Schengen Area for up to 90 days within a 180-day period. This visa is suitable for various purposes, including tourism, business, or family visits. The application process involves submitting the required documents to the embassy or consulate of the Schengen country you plan to visit first.

Determine the Schengen Country of Entry: Identify the Schengen country you intend to visit first, as you will need to submit your visa application to the embassy or consulate of that specific country. This is often the country where you will spend the majority of your time.

Prepare the Necessary Documents, these typically include:

  • A completed visa application form [attached file]

  • Valid passport

  • Passport-sized photos

  • Flight itinerary

  • Travel insurance

  • Proof of accommodation

  • Proof of financial, which serves as enough proof of subsistence—changes for approximately €130 per day.

  • Proof of employment or enrolment

Submit your application and wait for the visa decision: After submitting your application, the visa processing times can vary, so it's advisable to apply well in advance of your intended travel date.
