    one schengen visa, two countries?

    I plan to visit Amsterdam (return back to my country of residence) then few days visit Paris. Since my travel is not a countinous (go to Paris from Amsterdam ) plan, is it possible to just use one visa for both countries if the visa validity is within the time scale I plan to visit both countries or do I have to apply for separate visa for each country.

    AFAIK you can use the same visa as long as the visa itself has no restrictions (e.g. single entry)

    Single entry for both countries?
    Would it not be two entries since I will be going to going to 2 two countries and there is a break up in journey where I will be returning before going to Paris. I asked cause on the visa form you can tick single, two or multiple entries.

    you don't need visa to travel across EU

    Sounds like you need a Uniform Schengen Visas (USV) not a National Visa. schengenvisainfo.com/

    That is only true if you are a citizen of selected countries. I'm assuming the OP is not from one of them

    From what I know, an "entry" is when you enter any of the schengen countries from outside the schengen areas. Moving between countires within the schengen area doesn't count as an entry. I suppose in your case you would require two entries.

    Your visa is for EU - so any member of EU you could visit. In application form you must tick two/multiple otherwise after coming back from Amsterdam, you wont be able to re-enter any EU state.

    If you get multiple/two visit visa then you dont need to get another visa again after coming back from Amsterdam. You could use the same visa to visit Paris as long as visa has not expired.

    ​Did she go back to to a non shenghan visa country and then go to the other. you will need multiple visa if u go back and forth from a non shenghan place in between the visits.

    This is correct as I will be returning back to a non schengen then go Paris. If I was going straight from Amsterdam to Paris then all I would need is one visa.
