Glossary: Schengen area
The Schengen area refers to countries covered by the Schengen Agreement signed in 1995 to abolish border checks at the signatories' common borders and adopt harmonization of visa policies. Anyone holding a valid signatory’s nationality identification or entry visa, can travel freely in the Schengen area. All EU countries, except Bulgaria, Ireland, Romania and the UK, are members of the Schengen Agreement, while non-EU Schengen members include Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Liechtenstein.
