This question already has an answer here:
I am applying for a tourist Schengen visa type C. It is unclear if they will grant me a multiple entry visa. My currently planned trip lasts for 30 days. So what should be the duration of the insurance?
The reason why I am asking is, is the number of entries dependent upon the duration of the insurance? That is, if the insurance is valid for 30 days then does that have any effect on issuing a multiple-entry visa (considering my first trip is 30 days)?
In other words, is having a 180 days insurance necessary for getting a multiple entry visa?
