Hello fellow europeans, Irish here. I have a question regarding Schengen area, so as most of you will probably know, Ireland is not a member of Schengen. so my question is, how does free travel apply to an Irish person who is in Spain and wants to enter France? or an Irish person who wants to enter Germany from France, if the Irish person drives, how does he show his passport if there is no boarders or no boarder control? i understand that if the Irish man flies to any European country he will have to show his passport at boarder control in the airport, but when you're driving there is no boarder control? so does this mean an Irish man who is in Spain who wants to drive to France can do so without bringing his passport? Thank you if you can explain to me, this has been making me really confused!
Hello all. I am moving from California to Finland for university this Summer. Although there are border restrictions in place, as a student I will be allowed through the border and into Finland.
That being said, I am required to do this through the "internal border", meaning I must fly to Finland from another Schengen nation. Every time I've flown to Finland in the past, I have gone through London via Norwegian Air. I am having trouble finding flights from San Francisco/Oakland to Helsinki/Vantaa through a Schengen zone.
Has anybody flown to Finland from a Schengen zone, or know of any flights that commonly fly that path? I assume I'll have to make a connecting flight, which is fine, but this is my first time setting up a flight plan like this. Thanks for all the help.
I am an American traveling from United States to Croatia, since Croatia is allowing all nations to enter freely.
However, one of the flights I was browsing has a 17+ hour layover in Paris. I cannot enter France since Americans are banned due to COVID-19.
I looked on the exceptions of who may be allowed into the EU from America and I read that if you have a transit flight (you are only in Europe as a layover) then that’s fine.
Has anyone from America traveled to Europe as a layover only? (Since COVID) If so, were you allowed to transit through? Were you forced to quarantine? What are your experiences
Also special economic treaties.
If yes, is there a country that you wouldn't want to join unless they change something about their laws/policies first?
And another question, would you let Russia or China join?
So I am remembering seeing that Europe will start requiring US citizens to get prior authorization before entering the EU starting 2021. I am scheduled to fly to Amsterdam on December 13th and was planning to travel through East/West Europe and the gulf states (weird plans, I know, but I have a bunch if travel credits to be used by that time so it is what it is) Anyway, should I remain in the Schengen Area after the 1st of January since I wouldn’t have been required to get authorization before my trip started? Or what going to happen? Can I get it on arrival? I return to the States on January 3rd, so it’s just a few days I’d need to worry about. All of this is assuming travel is mostly back to normal given the current circumstances.
Bonjour France !
A friend of mine wants to come to Turkey and he has a ticket for July 4th from Paris to Istanbul. He says he cannot find any official sources but he keeps hearing some infos from some bloggers that he won’t be able to leave the Schengen even after July 1st.
Will he actually be able to leave Schengen on that date? Merci in advance.
I'm an admitted student from Germany ready to join NJIT for Fall 2020 and I'd like to know if there are admitted students from the same country/from the EU. As there's still a travel ban ongoing I don't know if I'm going to be able to attend on-campus classes. My second option is the so-called FlexPath that NJIT has offered to international students.
The Schengen area is an agreement facilitating bona fide free movement across mostly all of Europe, with minimal/strictly necessary time-restricted internal border checks (NOT immigration.) Customs are not included. I think that due to cultural similarity and common history, cooperation, and fighting each others wars through NATO, and the fact that these countries are relatively well functioning democracies with a lot of common cultural understanding and big diasporas in either direction it's silly to be so restrictive when it comes to transatlantic travel between people who have become so befriended and understanding of each other, especially over the internet.
To satisfy condition 1) I have noted that this opinion has never been floated afaik, and also nationalist protectionism is rife over large parts of these regions.
I also think that in cases where even further expansion is deemed impossible, it should be a priority to make changes that will make it possible to do so, instead of focusing on various impossibilities.
I'm unsure if I'm violating condition 10. but deemed that I'm not because this is a political opinion I have honestly never come across.
I study in the netherlands. I have lots of friends from outside the schengen area, and we are trying to figure out what the restrictions are for them to come back here (lots of them went home at the start of the pandemic and now want to come back)
It seems that self quarantine is a must, but a friend mentioned a mandatory covid test when entering the schengen area that you would have to pay for out of pocket. That seemed a bit weird to me as it seems there is already a shortage of tests and I hadn't ehard of it before.
Thing is, neither of us know where to look. If any of you can advise us we would be greateful!
Hi! Just curious, I am planning a trip to Europe and I am planning on stopping in Dublin first. On my way to Dublin I have a layover in Lisbon which is in a Schengen country. My question is, does this count as one of my ninety days, and does it start the 180 day clock? Thanks!
Cyprus submitted an application to become part of the Schengen area in September.(even though we don't expect to be let in)
Would you like Cyprus to join it?
What about Romania and Bulgaria(of what I see EU Parliament support the admission of both countries
(I am so bored in hospital:(
Hello team. I am traveling to Europe in 1 week. I will be visiting multiple countries, some of them within Schengen area and some outside of it. How do I make sure that the in/out dates for these places are clear on my passport? Talking about the date of entry and the date of exit of a Schengen/non Schengen country. For example, from Greece to Croatia (or vice versa), or from Latvia to Russia. Do I need to have it stamped by the concerned authorities everytime I leave the Schengen zone? If so, how do I get them to do it?
Most of my movements will be done by bus so I am not sure how it works outside of the airport, I don't know if there is any kind of border control or migration control like in the airport.
I understand that the maximum time for me to stay is 90 days within a 180-days period. However, as I am planning to leave Europe and re-enter on October, i want to make sure that the concerned authorities can see that I did not go over this time at all.
I went to Europe last year but I traveled within the Schengen zone only, my passport was stamped on the arrival country and on the country I left, nothing else. I don't actually care about the stamps on my passport but more about not getting in legal trouble and damaging my migratory log.
Any other advise you can give me will be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot guys.
Hi all, I would really appreciate some visa/Schengen-related advice. I was sent here from r/travel.
My boyfriend and I (both US citizens) work remotely and got permission to work out of Europe for 6 months starting in March 2020. We're keeping our US-based tech jobs and plan on coming back to the US after the 6 months are up. We were thinking of spending 3 months in Zagreb, Croatia (non-Schengen), and then 3 months in Berlin, Germany (Schengen).
While living in the non-Schengen Croatia, we would travel to non-Schengen places, and while living in Schengen Germany, we would travel to Schengen places.
Would this work? Is this pushing any visa laws? Since we're only traveling for 6 months we'd prefer not to get residency visas anywhere since they're such a hassle. We're also worried since Croatia may become Schengen next year.
We'd really appreciate any advice on this matter, or any recommendations for living elsewhere.
I will come to Croatia this month as part of a student exchange program. I want to know if it is possible to enter the Schengen area with a temporary residence permit. I've heard that Croats are able to travel to the Schengen area without a Schengen visa. Will I have the same right since I'll have a residence permit?
Hola amigos, I am planning a trip to Europe in December with my Nicaraguan fiancee (also has a US green card and we will be married by the time of the trip if either of those matter--I am a US citizen), I want to make absolutely certain that she will not need a separate visa for any of the countries we are visiting. According to this she shouldn't, but wanted to be absolutely certain--if anyone could confirm I'd greatly appreciate it. We will be traveling to Germany, Poland, Czechia, Austria, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein.
Is there tandem skydiving in any country of the Schengen area within the next 10 days? I've been looking for the past hours with no luck. I need to do it before going back to my country and I will be grateful if you could please direct me. Thank you!
I am a little confused. I will be touring Ireland and the UK for about three months. April to June. Will the time spent there affect my going into the Schengen areas for an additional month or two? I have a passport and adequate finances. Must I have a prepaid passage back to the US ahead of time? My intent is to travel until my travel budget gets exhausted. (Leaving more than enough to return home of course). I haven’t been able to find the answer on any official sites.
