Understanding the 90/180 Days Rule

The 90/180 days rule in the Schengen area means that if you're not from an EEA country, you can only stay for a maximum of 90 days out of any 180-day period.

It's important to know that this 180-day period keeps moving forward, one day at a time. So, to figure out how many days you have left in the Schengen area, you can't simply subtract the number of days you've already stayed in the last 180 days from 90 on the day you enter. Instead, you need to consider how the moving 180-day period affects the total days you've spent in the Schengen area for each day of your planned stay.

To determine the length of your stay, you need to find the longest continuous period of days in which you haven't exceeded the 90/180 days rule.

How the workrest Visa Calculator works

The workrest Visa Calculator works by allowing you to enter the days that you're within the EU, and it'll then show you how many available days you have remaining.
