The "Schengen space" is the territory constituted by the countries which
are members of the Schengen agreement. The following countries are today
active members of the Schengen agreement : Austria, Belgium, France,
Germany, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Spain & Portugal. The
aim of the Schengen agreement is to allow free circulation of people
within the territory (Schengen space) of the member countries. A
Schengen visa issued by a Schengen member State is valid for the
territory of all member States. All foreigners who are legally resident
in one of the Schengen member States can make short visits without a
visa to any other member State, provided they travel with their valid
passport which must be recognized by all the Schengen States and a
resident permit issued by the authorities of the country of
residency.Therefore, Since the UK is not a member of the Schengen
agreement, nationals who are not exempted from
visa requirements by the Schengen member states and who reside
permanently or temporarily in the UK need a visa to enter the Schengen
Space. Switzerland also requires a separate Visa.
