I am a Canadian citizen and had some questions regarding the 90 in 180 Schengen rule.
I am going to the Netherlands in mid January and am planning to stay in Amsterdam until the end of June with period where I'll be in Israel and Russia/Eastern Europe in between. I calculated the total days and it is 164 and out of the 164 I'll be in the Netherlands for 89 days.
The problem is I wanted to travel France and Germany, for about 2 or so weeks, after but it seems I will not be able to since I already used up my 90 days in the Netherlands and I would have to leave the Schengen area for 90 days before returning to renew the 90 days. I was wondering if there was anything or some sort of visa I could apply for that will allow me to stay in the Schengen area past the visa free 90 days.
Thanks for all the input,
