I will have to visit Europe twice for five months in total. I am Thai and will need a visa. The maximum stay in europe is 90 days, otherwise you have to apply for a long term stay according to my research. However, it will be complicated and time consuming.
This is my travel plan:
- Aug - Sep: Munich
- Sep - Nov: France (I have to complete a short course in Paris which is not more than 90 days)
- Nov - Dec: Munich again
I am aware that I need to leave and re-enter the country when the duration reaches 90 days. Can I apply for a tourist visa in Germany's embassy for 90 days that's valid in six months and a second visa from France for 90 days. In between these trips, I will leave the continent to Russia or Turkey where a visa is not required and re-enter again.
Therefore I need two Schengen visas but is it possible to have two Schengen visas in one passport?
