MessageSujet: Type D visa and overstaying   Mar 10 Avr à 17:53


i have a type D student visa (+1 transit Schengen) for France from ist jan till 1st july 07.

My initial plan is to travel around europe after my visa expires till 28july and then take a flight back to Singapore.... the reason why i planned to "overstay" is because i am holding a Singapore passport and as a Singaporean, i can stay in the EU and other Eastern European countries for up to 90 days for traveling purposes without a visa (hence the "overstaying" part from 1st july till 28july)

I went to the local prefecture in lyon and asked if i can do that but they said i HAVE to leave France on the 1st july regardless.... but what i can do is go to for eg, Switzerland on the 1st July, get a stamp proving that i did indeed leave, and then come back to France again after that... and subsequently i can be free to travel for another 90 days....

i was wondering in your opinion is this feasible....if not, what would you reccomend or do you think i should just reschedule my flight back to Singapore on the 1st july when my visa expires?

This type of issue is not directly addressed in Schengen regulations.

Our view is that you may stay in France until your D visa expires. Then you have to leave the Schengen area and come back to it (even the next day) to start enjoying the visa free status derived from your nationality.
