I have a valid multiple entry schengen business visa issued by the German embassy for a duration of 1 year. I was supposed to travel at the beginning of May 2019 to Germany and use this visa but unfortunately my business trip got cancelled. Therefore, I have not used this visa so far. I wanted to know if I can use this visa for tourism and now can I enter Austria through this visa as it is valid for a year and is multiple entry visa for all schengen states ?

    Had you used it for your planned trip initially it would have been smooth sailing for further visits of any touristic nature but since the primary purpose was never utilized i think you will face some questioning at the very least. I wouldn't bet on it – Hanky Panky May 10 at 7:14
  • Just apply for a new visa. The €60 is worth the peace of mind. – user 56513 May 10 at 10:58
