HI I got my Schengen visa today. I applied it to Portugal embassy I am going for 3 holidays within the 90 days period , when i submitted application it was 100% clear that i wanted visa from 25.03.2014 to 10.05.2014 . I have mentioned this when i went for the visa interview and the person who took my interview told me that he has given me visa till June. But when I received my visa today. I have got my visa till April and i am travelling to Spain on May 3rd. All i wanted is just a week extra visa. Now I am in a situation where i can’t apply for visa since i am travelling for 25.03.2014 to 29.04.2014. I have no time gap to apply for my Spain visa even if i wanted to.

Does somebody have any idea what could be done. Could you please advise me?

Regards
Sam

I think you have to quickly contact the people who issued your visa & explain exactly as you did above.

HI Steve,

Thanks you.... I have tried doing that but they don’t pick your call neither reply to your email. I live in Cardiff and the visa was processed in Manchester which 4hr on train. It’s not sensible for me go directly (they don’t see you without appointments). :(:(:(

Hi Steve,

Thank you again , Since I live in Cardiff London embassy doesn't deal with the south wales application which is reason why I had to get to Manchester for completion of my Visa process . Anyways i have emailed London embassy in regards to this and waiting for there reply .

Thanks once again
