The UK visa application for general visits states the following question at some point:
How many times have you visited the following places in the past 10 years?
- New Zealand
- Schengen area
This is quite a confusing question to answer for someone who has lived in the Schengen territory on the basis of long-term residence permits for a few years.
Am I supposed to list each and every visit I've had WITHIN the Schengen territory? (i.e. if I live in Sweden, should I list all my two-day trips to Norway, all my vacation times in Spain, etc.?) As you are aware, once you are in the Schengen territory, traveling around won't get you more stamps in your passport. So should I only include my entrances to the Schengen territory or should I list all the one-day and two-day trips I have made to nearby countries?
