Visa is a document or mark showing that a person is conditionally authorized to enter or leave the territory for which it was issued, subject to permission of an immigration official at the time of actual entry. The authorization is a stamp endorsed on the applicant's passport. The country issuing the visa typically attaches various conditions of stay, such as the territory covered by the visa, dates of validity, period of stay, whether the visa is valid for more than one visit, etc.

The above said conditions do not apply to the Schengen Area which is a group of 26 European countries that have abolished passport and immigration controls at their common borders. It functions as a single country for international travel purposes, with a common visa policy. Travelling in Europe has been simplified with the introduction of the Schengen visa. As a visitor to the Schengen area, one enjoys the many advantages of this unified visa system. Generally speaking with a Schengen visa, you may enter one country and travel freely throughout the Schengen region during the validity of the visa. Internal border controls are limited with no or few stops and checks.

Medical Travel Insurance mandatory for SCHENGEN states

Travel insurance including medical cover is mandatory when you apply for a Schengen visa. It must cover the duration of the requested visa - annual insurance may be required if you are requesting a multi-entry visa. Attention : In case of refusal of the visa by the authorities, please ask them for documentary evidence proving their refusal. The insurance premium cannot be refunded to you without this official proof.


At Insight we help in obtaining a passport by guiding what all documents are required, helps online completion of forms and obtaining the submission date. A passport is an important document issued by the Indian Government which will certify the identity & nationality of its holder for the purpose of INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL. The Passport highlights the name, date of birth, gender and place of birth, name of parents and name of spouse (if married). A passport does not of itself entitle the passport holder entry into another country; however, it entitles the passport holder to return to the country that issued the passport


Insight Visa Consultancy help and assist externally for legalization of documents. Legalization is a process of authenticating the documents issued in one country and intended for use in another country in order to be recognized as valid in foreign country. The documents are first verified and authenticated by respective State Government from where the document is issued and then authenticated by Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) in India. After MEA authentication, it is submitted to the Embassy / Consulate for final attestation. In case the documents are supposed to be submitted in the country which is a member of Hague Convention then separate embassy attestation is not required. The document will be first verified and authenticated by respective Home Department / HRD and then apostilled by MEA. The following documents are legalized (as per country requirements):

1. Educational Certificates,

2. Birth & Marriage Certificates,

3. Company's Commercial Documents,

4. Police Clearance Certificate (PCC).


At Insight we assist to all foreigners (including foreigners of Indian origin) visiting India for long duration (more than 180 days) be it for students/medical/research/employment visas, are required to get themselves registered with FRRO.

We assist foreign nationals to extend their visa who are already in India. Please note a Tourist Visa cannot be changed or converted in to any other visa category. But apart from tourist, one can go for the longer terms visa while in India.

We also help and assist in obtaining OVERSEAS CITIZENSHIP OF INDIA (OCI). It is mandatory for registered OCI's to carry their passports which have the universal sticker for entry into/exit from India. A registered OCI is granted multiple entries for visiting India and he/she is exempted from registration with FRRO.

At the same time we assist in obtaining PERSONS OF INDIAN ORIGIN CARD (PIO Card). A PIO card allows visa free travel and gives several benefits to the card holder. PIO card will be valid ONLY when accompanied with a valid passport; a PIO card is normally valid for 15 years.
