So I know that as a US citizen we are allowed to stay in the Schengen zone for a total of 90/180 days. Anyone has any idea what happens when you overstay th the 90 days?
I am finishing my degree in Poland, I only had 4 months left so I (stupidly enough) did not get a student visa thinking I could just go to, say, England, get stamped and then come back with my 90 days renewed. However after April 2010 this stopped working since they started enforcing the 6 month period deal. I am already in Poland and cannot go back to the States now (unless I wanna forfeit graduating) and my 90 days will expire very soon. So I need to know what happens if I stay an extra month and then wanna go back to the States. Will I get banned from the Schengen zone? Will I get fined? Will I be arrested?!?!
I am trying to weigh my options and consider all possible scenarios in order to figure out what is the best course of action. Any ideas on what I should/can do?
