Even bigger! Damn, Shitty Schengen :| Maplefanta 13:11, 9 November 2007 (CET)
- Are there no other ways to get a stamp in your passport, i.e. on airports? I heard that this is usual in some asian countries, but might be a matter of corruption. What about Switzerland (yet)? Oh, and mabye Heligoland is an option, as it is a part of Germany but not of the schengen area. --MrTweeksite, wikitalk 13:24, 9 November 2007 (CET)
new 90 days
I think it's even worse than what's currently written in this article. You will have to be outside of Schengen for 90 days to get your new 90 days. Until Switzerland is not part of Schengen you might be able to say that you spent 90 days in Switzerland, and then 90 days in the rest. But I'm not sure if that will always work. It's also unclear what the consequences of overstaying are. And I know many people who are overstaying. But it might be tricky. And yes, it's all ridiculous. From Wikipedia:
- For citizens of countries not party to the Schengen Agreement, there are restrictions governing the length of one's stay within the Schengen area. The general rule stipulates a maximum 90-day stay within the 180-day period starting from the first day of entry. Provided a multiple-entry visa has been granted, one may leave and return a number of times within the 180-day period but the combined stay within the region must not exceed 90 days.
- All this blabla is not really proven effective though and many different conception still exist. I do not believe that, with a canadian, passport can be denied entrance at any time for 180 days without proper justifications. I am not sure that it was necessery to write and specify the 90 days over period out of Schengen. As a matter of fact, someone could have any possible reasons to travel within Schengen within that 90 days, it is the reasons/statements that you will give that will makes the difference. One element is also that it is currently impossible for the Schengen states to know if you did leave the zone or not, the customs systems are not connected together and you may have left without receiving a stamps. There are plenty of elements that avoid such rules to be strictly enforced. Maplefanta 18:49, 10 January 2008 (CET)
