Getting a visa to countries in the Schengen Area is usually a big deal, this is so because a visa to any of the countries in the Schengen Area gives the visitor access to all the other countries within the Schengen Area.
The possibility of getting a visa to some of the countries in the Schengen Area is completely bleak, especially for Nigerians, because a good number of Nigerians who were given a chance to visit exceeded their visit time. This has made access to this Area, for Nigerians especially, a big task.
However, there a still a few countries that visas can be gotten. In this article, we’ll look at The country with the highest possibility of getting a Schengen visa.
Lithuania is the easiest country to get a visa from in the Schengen Area. Lithuania’s recent statistics showed that it had only 1.3% of the short-term applications rejected in year 2018. That is to say, 98.7% of the applicants for a Schengen Visa to Lithuania received a positive answer on their application.
Lithuania, officially known as ‘the Republic of Lithuania’ is a country situated in the region of Europe. Lithuania is one of the great Baltic states. The country is situated along the south-east shore of the Baltic Sea, to the east of Sweden and of Denmark.
It is bordered on the North by Latvia, Belarus to the east, Poland to the south, and Kaliningrad Oblast to the southwest. As of 2019, Lithuania had an estimated population of 2.8 million people, and its capital and largest city is Vilnius.
Other major cities in Lithuania are Kaunas and Klaipėda. Lithuanians are Baltic people. The official language spoken among them is, Lithuanian, it is one of the only two living languages in the Baltic branch of the Indo-European language family, the other being Latvian.
Beautifully, Lithuania is placed somewhere in the middle of the table regarding the total number of short-term visa applications that get to be received. This simply means you will not have to make an appointment for too long before the needed time.
Unlike for countries as Germany and France and many other countries where applicants are required to schedule an appointment many months ahead of their planned trip to Schengen nation.
