Calculation of short-term stays / short-stay calculator

The short-stay calculator is used to calculate the amount of time available for short stays of no more than 90 days in any 180-day period. This calculator is used for third-state nationals within the Schengen Area, regardless of their visa obligation status.

The short-stay calculator was developed by the European Commission and the Norwegian immigration authorities and is intended primarily for the following users:

  • Diplomatic/consular missions
  • Migration authorities
  • Border control authorities
  • Police
  • Third-state nationals subject to a visa obligation
  • Third-state nationals not subject to a visa obligation


The short-stay calculator is merely a technical tool. The results of calculations are not legally binding. In justified cases, the corresponding authorities have the express right to make exceptions.
