I am a South Africa citizen currently in the UK. I have spent 90 days out of 180 days on my Schengen visa in the Netherlands. I would like to go back to Europe before the 180 days resets. If I apply for a long stay visa from France (http://www.ambafrance-uk.org/Long-stay-visa,11784) will it be affected by the 90 / 180 Schengen rule or does it fall under a different rule?
