I have a type D visa, but it is valid for Germany. I will travel to my country (outside of the EU) and I will come back passing through Spain (I will stay a while between flights because I have booked with two different companies). Will Spain allow me to pass through? Can anyone confirm if I can, please?

Thank you in advance!

  • Is your D visa still valid – Crazydre Apr 11 '18 at 17:32
  • Yes, it is valid. – mohmsslk Apr 12 '18 at 17:42

If your D visa is still valid, then you can exit and re-enter the Schengen Area through Spain.

While it says it's only valid for one country (I really don't know why - it's stupid), since a couple of years they've been equal to residence permits in normal cases, permitting entry and exit to/from the Area through any member state.

  • D visa must mention the one country where 90/180 does not apply. A D visa which explicitly excludes travel to other countries would be unusual. – o.m. Apr 12 '18 at 5:14
