I requested an 11-day Schengen visa. But my duration of stay says 16 days on the visa. Does that means I'm free to stay 16 days?
And about the flight. I'm thinking of going to Russia first as I also have a visa for Russia. So would it be possible for me to fly from Russia to Schengen instead from my home country? Because when I applied for my visa I gave them a flight itinerary of a return ticket to my home country. My entry date, exit date and the itinerary will be the same in the Schengen zone. And I might stay longer than 11 days if it's possible.
