Easiest Countries To Obtain Schengen Visa From

In case you are wondering travelling to a Schengen Area, worry not as you are not the only one aspiring for that. Worldwide applications are pouring in over Schengen countries Embassies daily.

Assuming that you already know about the nits and grits of the Schengen Visa types, there might be some issues yet to get resolved. Also, the most important issue is related to where to apply without receiving a rejection. Coming back to the point, several statistics would help you in expanding your horizon of knowledge. Starting from the leading countries, you will get introduced to the easiest countries to apply for a visa. Below are some of the easiest countries with the highest rate of Schengen visas issued during the year 2019.


Another Baltic country is listed among the easiest to get a visa from, according to the 2018 rejection rates. Only 1.6% of the applications lodged
at the Estonian embassies abroad were turned down, while the rest 98.4% were granted with a short-term visa to the Schengen Area. Besides,
Estonia is the sixth Schengen country with least visa applications received, which means its embassies are less crowded.


With the least Schengen Visa applications received in 2018 and only 1.7% of the applications rejected, Iceland is a wonderful way to get a visa to the Schengen Area. Yet, you are advised to first check where you need to apply, since Iceland is mostly represented by other countries, and does not have that many consulates of its own. This means that if the consulate representing Iceland is crowded, you will need to wait a bit more for an appointment.


Lithuania is the easiest country to get a Schengen visa from, with only 1.3% of the short-term applications rejected in 2018. In total, 98.7% of the applicants for a Schengen Visa to Lithuania received a positive answer on their application.

Moreover, Lithuania is placed somewhere in the middle of the table regarding the total number of short-term visa applications received. This
also means you will have to wait for less to make an appointment. Unlike for countries such as Germany and France, when in many countries
applicants need to make an appointment several months ahead of their planned trip to Schengen.


The Northern European country of Finland, despite the high number of visa applications it receives annually, remains an easy Schengen country to get a visa from. Rejecting only 1.7% of the applications its consulates abroad received, you have high chances to get a Schengen Visa to Finland.


The Republic of Poland is also an easier country to get a visa from. Despite a 0.9 difference with Latvia, those applying for a Schengen visa to Poland have a 97% chance of getting a positive answer. The Central European country had a low rate of visa rejection of only 3%.


The small landlocked country of Luxembourg may be your way to Schengen, in particular if you wish to visit its neighbouring countries,
France, Germany and Belgium. With a rejection rate of only 3.7%

Luxembourg, which is also the second country with the least applications received, looks like a good deal for Schengen visa applicants.
Czech Republic Those applying for a short-term visa to the Czech Republic have a higher chance of getting rejected, compared to the ½ of what previously was Czechoslovakia (yes, we’re talking about Slovakia). Yet, with an approval rate of 95.3%, you still have a very high chance of getting a positive answer on your application.


While in 2014 Greece had a rejection rate of only 2%, things have changed a bit. Now, if you apply for a Germany Schengen visa, you have a chance of 4.9% to be rejected. Last year, the Greek embassies abroad approved 95.1% of the applications received. Greece is the fifth most favourite country for those intending to visit the Schengen area for short-term stays, with 855,285 applications received last year.
