The Schengen Area refers to a group of countries, most of which are part of the European Union, that allow free movement within their shared borders. If you can get a visa to one such country, you can visit them all, making the Schengen Area appealing for tourists and immigrants alike. However, there’s a catch: Depending on your nationality and how long you plan on staying, you need special insurance to qualify for a visa.

One choice that meets the visa requirements is AXA Schengen insurance. The AXA certificate is accepted at all embassies and consulates representing the 26 countries of the Schengen Area. You'll receive a certificate as soon as you purchase your travel insurance online.
