I'm applying for Schengen visa multi-entry but I don't know how to answer to Q 25, 29 and 30.

How do I fill in the dates? I only know about my first trip as I have booked it already but I'll be flying in/out of Schengen zone multi times over the next 12 months but the time/dates of my other trips are not known yet.

Here's the link to the form:


Any hints and help is much appreciated.

    I'm pretty sure (but not 100%) that those fields apply to the first trip only.

  • But if I only add the dates for first trip they may issue a short term 90 days visa.

  • If they issue a short term visa you can apply for a second after your initial trip. Your subsequent applications will be made stronger for having followed the terms of the first visa they grant you. Commented Mar 4, 2018 at 20:35

In the Schengen visa form, you only enter the dates for the first trip that you will make into the Schengen Zone. Information about subsequent trips can be included in the itinerary that you also have to submit as a part of your application. You may also include a letter explaining why you wish to enter the Schengen Zone multiple times.

However, keep in mind that despite all this, you may only receive a single entry visa. At the same time, many consulates may also issue a multiple entry visa even when you only indicate that you are planning to visit once.

    +1 to add that if this is your first time applying, you are more likely to receive a restricted visa. Commented Mar 6, 2018 at 4:37
