Question: What visa does an Indian citizen need to WWOOF — volunteer on organic farms — in Europe?

Answer:

Technically, you need a work visa to even volunteer in many European countries, but the authorities will probably never grant a visa for such an endeavor. So the common move is to enter on a tourist visa and never say that you are planning to engage in the WWOOF or any other volunteer program.
