[quote=europe124]Dear t_maia,

Ohh, I see your point. Sorry for misunderstandings.

I heard that I'm able to travel for 90 days in Europe without any form of visas. I didn't really get the part where I will be granted an issue of visa on arrival..? I thought I only needed passport as long as I don't stay for more than 90 days.

90 days = 3 months
180 days = 6 months
right??

I have a question about one phrase you've written:

'So you need to get to the Schengen area by June 26th, not leave it.'

DOES THIS MEAN THAT I'M OKAY TO TRAVEL FOR 90 DAYS AS LONG AS I ARRIVE IN EUROPE BY JUNE 26TH, 2006? OR GET THERE BY JUNE 26TH, BUT YOU CANNOT LEAVE BACK TO U.S?

But I'm mostly likely thinking of 60 - 70 days tour.

Well if I go to UK [probably not, but still thinking about it, because I'm only going to get 2 months Eurail ticket] and looks like London inbound airfare is cheapest. Paris inbound at this time is about $400 more. I'll rather catch EuroStar from London-Paris.

Do you mean that the passport has to be valid for six months upon arrival at Europe? And does not matter when I leave as long as its within 90 days period?

COULD YOU ELABORATE ON THE STATEMENTS BELOW?

BTW, can't you renew your passport while you are in Europe and get some documents that you are going to do this in the US?

The thing is that people will be slightly scared that you use the full 6 months and that your passport will be no longer valid when the six months are over. Then they have a problem getting you out of Europe if you refuse to cooperate.

Thank you always!!

Ok, when you arrive in Europe you get a stamp in your passport. It isn't a visa, but functons as one, so it is called a visa upon arrival. It is just a word for a stamp.

I thought I only needed passport as long as I don't stay for more than 90 days.

You always need a passport, no matter how long your stay.

The visa/stamp/whatever will have to be valid for 180 days. You can stay only 90 days. But the stamp is valid for 180 days, so the passport must be valid for 180 days.

For the Schengen area, yes. So: June 26th in Paris.

I don't know about the UK or getting back to the US. That is your job to figure out. Ask the UK embassy.

YES. Congratulations, you understood!

Actually, it is more complicated than that, but that is the gist of it. I won't bother you with more of the Schengen laws. For this you would have to give me your schedule over private message.

Dear t_maia,
Thank you for all the information.
I can understand more clearly than before.
BTW, did you mean that I should send you an itinerary over PM?
Thanks!
