I am an Indian citizen, I am postdoctoral researcher in France. I have a multiple entry schengen visa. On arriving here, I applied for carte de sejour (CDS) as required by the law. I have received the rècèpisse (receipt) for applying for CDS.
Right now my Schengen visa has expired. Even though my visa has expired, since I have the rècèpisse, my stay in France is legal. Now I would like to travel to Brussels and Amsterdam during the xmas and new-year break. So I would like to know if I can travel to these countries with the rècèpisse (as a substitute for my expired visa)? Can someone let me know about this?
Thanks a lot!
