If you are planning to visit Europe, make sure you’ve got your travel insurance with your Schengen visa to travel safe with peace of mind. Travel insurance is highly suggested and it is also needed by some countries’ citizens to obtain the visa for entry into the Schengen area.
If you are travelling to one of the 26 countries (and 3 microstates) belonging to Schengen area, bear in mind that residents from specific non-EU countries are required to hold a visa to enter.

Nonetheless, it is always best to consult your embassy or consulate for the most up-to-date and accurate information regarding visa requirements.
You can obtain your visa application form from the country you plan to enter through the first or the one you plan to spend the most time in. When applying for the visa, you must also show the following documents:
Your passport must be valid for three months after your return from the Schengen area.
To verify your reason for visiting the Schengen area, you must submit documents stating not only the purpose of your trip but also the conditions in which you will be travelling. These proofs include but are not limited to:
In order to obtain a Schengen visa, you must have travel medical insurance that covers emergency medical, hospitalization and repatriation (including in case of death) with a minimum coverage of €30,000. Your travel insurance must be valid in all Schengen states and for the entire duration of your stay.
