90 days?

Travel Forums Europe 90 days?

1. Posted by mythxation (Budding Member 16 posts) 10y

I am planning to go on about a 7 month trip to Europe. I am from Canada, and in most European countries, I am legally allowed to spend 90 days there each. However, I know that there is an agreement called the Shengen Agreement in Europe that synchronized the visas they issue. I was wondering, is it a 90 day limit in all countries of these areas, or in each country?

And, does it work if say, you spend 89 days in Spain, then do a day trip to France, and then spend more time in Spain? Or is that illegal? Hopefully someone can help me out : )

peace out,

I am having the same issues. I posted a thread about passport 'stamping' let me know if you hear anything.

Sorry to say that it's 90 days for the whole Schengen zone and not individual countries. You can't leave for a day and go back either, you get 90 days over a 180 day period, so if you stayed for 90 days in the Schengen zone you would have to leave for another 90 days before you would be allowed back in.

Jen - that's the same situation whether you get your passport stamped or not I'm afraid. You won't be allowed to leave for a day and then go back in and get another 90 days.
