The Schengen Area encompasses 27 European member countries, fostering seamless travel within its borders. These nations include Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.
Traveling to the Schengen Area necessitates meeting specific requirements, including the presentation of a bank statement as proof of adequate financial resources for your stay in any Schengen country. However, if you plan to stay with friends or family, a support letter from them can substitute the bank statement.
It’s crucial to note that each Schengen country may have distinct minimum bank balance requirements. Additionally, your bank statement should not be older than 30 days to be considered valid.
