I have a 35-day multi-entry Schengen tourist visa. I have to travel to a country outside of Europe for 5 days (some urgent work) and back again to the Schengen area. Can I assume that those 5 days when I am out of Europe will not be counted as days spent in Europe?
Or do the 35 days mentioned in the visa start from the day you enter first? I have seen this type of condition in other countries too for eg New Zealand.
It's a Type C visa with an overall validity of 3 months.
