I have a valid multiple entry Schengen visa from Netherlands Embassy. It says BNL2 and type of Visa as "C". I went to Netherlands on business visit.

I want to travel to Spain now for tennis training of my daughter. Can I travel to Spain on the same visa now?

  • It is probably read as "Business NetherLands", unsure what 2 stands for. C-type visas are valid across the whole zone. – bipll Jun 27 '18 at 5:07
  • Thanks Bipil but as per other internet search, BNL2 means benelux 2 ( bruxelles, nederland, and Luxembourg). Hence, I am confused that whether it is a business Visa or I can also travel on leisure? Thanks! – Mandar Chaphalkar Jun 27 '18 at 5:55
  • Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg – Henning Makholm Jun 27 '18 at 16:12

There is no such thing as a "business" and "tourist" visa in the Schengen system. There are only uniform shot-stay visas, which is what you have.

Given that the visa is multiple-entry, the point of being multiple entry is that you can use it for any subsequent visit to anywhere in the Schengen area that satisfies the rules for a short visit.
