I often see Schengen questions being answered without first checking if a duplicate exists. This harms the structure of the website as instead of linking to a single canonical we're seeing several questions on the same topic with several different answers.
I would therefore like to remind everyone that 95% of all Schengen questions have already been answered and linked in our Community Wiki on Schengen questions. Kindly take a look there before answering a new question and vote to close if a duplicate already exists. If not, post your answer and add that question to the Community Wiki.
