- Estonia (excluding Greenland and the Faroe Islands)
- France (excluding overseas departments and territories)

With a Schengen visa, you may enter one country and travel freely throughout the Schengen zone. Internal border controls have disappeared, there are either few stops or no stops and checks. This means that the internal air, road and train travel are handled as domestic trips, similar to travelling from one Indian state to another.
