FAQ of San Marino Visas

Do I need a visa for San Marino?

San Marino does not have any visa requirements of its own. All Indian travellers visiting San Marino must enter San Marino via Italy. Therefore, even though there are no border formalities in San Marino, Indian travellers are required to hold a valid Italy Visa or any other Schengen country visa. Simultaneously anyone visiting a Schengen country can enter San Marino with a valid Schengen visa.

Is San Marino part of the Schengen territory?

San Marino is not a member of the Schengen territory. However, it maintains an open border with Italy. Since San Marino is only accessible via Italy, entrance is not possible without entering the Schengen Area first and therefore Schengen visa rules apply.

So, in order to visit San Marino, I must apply for an Italy Visa (Schengen visa)?

Yes. You must apply for an Italy visa or any other Schengen country visa.

What is an Italy Schengen visa?

An Italy Schengen visa is a special kind of visa which allows you to travel among all the Schengen countries including Italy for a maximum period of 90 days. This is a traveller’s dream which lets you travel to all the Schengen countries on one visa.

The Schengen Visa is valid for which countries?

Schengen Area comprises of the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

How long can I stay in San Marino on the basis of my Schengen visa?

The Schengen Visa is a short stay visa and takes the form of a sticker affixed to your passport. The definition of “short stay” is a stay of "90 days in any 180 days period". This means that the total duration of stay is of maximum 90 days in 6 months.

Will all Schengen Visas be granted for 90 days?

No, not necessarily all Schengen Visas will be granted for 90 days. You may get the Schengen Visa only for the number of days that you present in your travel itinerary and your flight & hotel bookings

Can I apply again for a Schengen Visa if my application has been refused earlier?

You are free to apply again for a Schengen Visa if your application has been refused earlier.

What is the Schengen Visa cover letter?

The Schengen Visa cover letter is a letter which summarizes your intent to travel to a country that is part of the Schengen area. In your cover letter you should explain:

- the purpose of your trip
- when and where you intend to travel
- how your trip is going to be funded
- day-by-day itinerary for your trip
- duration of the trip

How long before the start of the intended visit should I apply for the Schengen Visa?

You may only submit your Schengen visa application 90 days before your date of departure. We recommend that you apply at least 20 working days before the date you wish to depart as certain types of travel purpose may take longer than usual to process.

How long does it take to obtain the Visa?

Typically, a Schengen Visa takes approximately 10 to 15 days for processing. However, the processing time is dependent on several factors and can change without notice at the embassy's discretion.

Is it mandatory for me to take an appointment for a Schengen Visa?

Yes, an appointment is mandatory for Schengen Visa in order to provide your biometrics and submit your visa documents.

I am traveling to multiple Schengen countries. From which Consulate should I apply for my Schengen Visa?

Schengen Visa must be applied from the Embassy/Consulate of the country where you will be staying for maximum number of days. If your stay has equal number of days in each country, then you must apply to the Embassy/Consulate of the country which you will be entering first.

What is the difference between a single-entry Schengen Visa and a multiple-entry Schengen Visa?

A single-entry Schengen Visa allows entry to the Schengen area only once, meaning you are not permitted to re-enter the Schengen Area after leaving, while a multiple-entry Schengen Visa allows multiple entries into the Schengen Area within the visa’s validity period (90 days total within 180-day period).

Do I have to present any other document at the Schengen external borders apart from my travel document with the Schengen Visa?

The short-stay visa does not automatically entitle you to enter the Schengen area. At the border (or during other controls) you may have to show the visa but also provide additional documentation, for example; sufficient evidence that you have sufficient means to cover the stay and the return trip. It is therefore recommended that you carry with you copies of the documents which you presented when applying for the Schengen visa (e.g. letters of invitation, travel confirmations, other documents stating the purpose of your stay).

Do I have to apply in person for the Schengen Visa?

Yes, applications by mail will not be accepted. The Schengen visa application should be presented in person because biometrical data must be recorded.

What should be done if my San Marino visa gets rejected?

In the case of a San Marino visa rejection, the Embassy will state the reason for rejecting your visa application. You may also appeal against the decision if you find it necessary. 

Do I need travel insurance?

Travel medical insurance with minimum coverage of 30,000 EUR is one of the mandatory San Marino visa requirements. The insurance should cover all the Schengen countries as well. chillontrip can also assist you in choosing the perfect travel or medical insurance policy to protect you against unforeseen medical or travel emergencies.
