Another Schengen conundrum... I have a UK Working Visa?

Travel Forums Europe Another Schengen conundrum... I have a UK Working Visa?

Hi everyone,

I apologise about another Shengen question, but I think I have a new spin on this problem - and I'm desperate.

I understand the basic requirements of Schengen. 90 in, 90 out - simple(ish).

However, I am trying to figure out a way of staying in Czech for up to 4 month. Official work permit is not really an option, but I feel there might be another in relation to my UK working holiday visa.

I have a 2 year UK working holiday visa in my passport. Does this entitle me to similar rights of a UK citizen, in that I can stay in Czech beyond the 90 days?

Thanks for your help in advance...

A visa in your passport only grant you a right to stay in the issuing country for a limited time, and it doesn't apply in other countries. It also does not grant you temporary citizenship. So when you enter the Schengen area with your passport, you are entering as a citizen of the country your passport is issued.

Hien was righ. If you travel to Czech then you need to find out do you need a visa to entry to the country or not.

good luck
