I am an Indian citizen who was residing in the U.S few months back. I got a job offer from Italy and therefore, applied for a Schengen visa from the U.S. However, I had to come back to India for some personal reasons and now I will be traveling to Italy from India. My visa started from February 20 and is valid for one year. I am traveling to Italy on April 29.
My question is, since the issuing country and point of departure is different, can I still travel from India? Does the delayed date of arrival matter?
