I'll be travelling to Europe on a Schenegen visa for around 8 days. The entry point would be France (Paris) This would be my first international visit. What are the general customs / immigration formalities that I'll need to do while travelling from India to France and on the return leg (Switzerland to India) ?
The only formality you should pay attention to is making certain you get a Schengen exit stamp when leaving Switzerland. (You will get an entry stamp in France).
For the rest the formalities are pretty straightforward. When travelling to or from Switzerland you technically still have to pass customs (but not immigration) but in practice that border is as transparent as the other intra Schengen borders…
