This question already has an answer here:

I've just been awarded a 3 year Schengen multiple entry visa with 90 days "duration of stay".

Does this mean that I only have a total of 90 days to visit the Schengen area over 3 years i.e. each trip counts towards this total?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • This is a duplicate of Multiple entry Schengen Visa valid for 5 years, with duration of stay : 90 days, but I earlier voted to close as a duplicate of a different question, so I cannot vote to close it again. In any event, the answer is that you can stay up to 90 days in any 180-day period. Any day of presence that is more than 180 days in the past no longer counts toward the 90-day limit. – phoog Jun 6 '18 at 20:30
