visas should be obtained from the consulate of the member
country where a visitor plans entry into the Schengen zone and
is likely to spend most of his or her time.
Schengen visa allows you to enter into the country which
issues you the visa, and you may then travel freely throughout
all Schengen countries. It is assumed that you will spend most
of your time in the country which issued the visa to you, but
it is not a requirement. Some countries are much easier to
obtain a Schengen from, in practice, although the process is
supposed to be standardized.
It is therefore
possible, for another example, to obtain a Schengen visa via
the Italian or Spanish consluates, enter that country, and
then immediately travel to France and spend most of your time
there. However, countries which notice this practice may in
the future deny a Schengen application to people they feel are
a risk of abusing the intent of Schengen visas.
In the example
just described, Sweden or Hungary would have the right to deny
an application if they wish to, while other countries such as
Denmark or the Czech Republic retain the right to grant
permission, if they wish. Each signatory to the Schengen
Accord may decide to grant or deny an application to a person
based upon that individual's historical record of behavior and
travel in any other member country. So, it is generally
advisable to avoid this practice as much as possible to avoid
