I've got a dilemma. I am going on my holiday to France for two weeks in July but few days before that I need to fly to Italy for 2 days. So my traveling plan is: going to Italy for two days then back to the UK then a week later going to France for two weeks. What embassy should I apply for my Schengen visa? French or Italian. I'm scared that if I apply for the Italian one (where I'm going for two days) and then a week later will go to France for two weeks I might have problems. Or if I apply for the French embassy but then my first country I will enter on this visa will be Italy I will have trouble. I know traveling within the Schengen countries should be no problem but I need to go back to UK in-between so I won't have the continuation of the trip. Don't know what to do!!!

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

The general Schengen rules relevant to the previous question apply but OTOH practical experience with either the French or Italian embassies and/or border control could also be useful and specific to this question. –  Relaxed May 20 '13 at 21:09

1 Answer 1

You can got to either Italian or French Embassy ( since the period to stay on both countries are the same ).

However, for this case you should specifically to ask for multiple journey visa.
