    Hello! I was granted by the Czech Embassy in my country Schengen single entry visa. I plan to travel to Prague this June. I searched online and I found that it will be cheaper for me if I buy a plane ticket from my country up to VIENNA. From Vienna, I want to take the Student Agency bus going to Prague then. This will really be cheaper for me as oppose to buying a plane trip from my country to Prague itself.

    Now, I would like to know if I will encounter problems from the immigration officers at Vienna if I do this? I am quite confused because some people say that the European country that issued me the visa should be the country I should first enter. So some told me that if I will enter vienna first, i should get the visa from the Austrian embassy. Is this true? I only want to enter vienna because it will be cheaper for me to reach Prague from there. Will the immigration officers in Vienna ask me why my first point of arrival is in Austria given that the schengen visa I got was issued by the Czech embassy?

    I hope you can help me! Thank you in advance for your answer!

      Dear Sarah, I am not authorized to provide exact information but all tourists I know never had a problem – its because you are in Schengen.

        Dear Ivana, thank you for your immediate reply! I guess you're right. Given that I'm already in Schengen territory, I hope I won't have a problem entering Vienna first. Thank you again!
