I have a Schengen visa from French embassy valid between 25-05 to 10-06-2019 for the stay of 15 days.

I want to travel on 6th June for 10 days. That is 6th June to 16th June, is it ok or do I have to travel between 25-05 to 10-06-2019. Please advise.

    6 May was two and a half weeks ago. Are you sure the dates in this question are correct?

  • Note that if someone enters the Schengen area on June 6 and leaves on June 16, that counts as 11 days of presence in the Schengen area, even though the duration of such a visit could be anywhere from just over 216 hours to just under 264 hours.

You may not be present in the Schengen area before the "from" date of your visa nor after its "to" date. I assume that you actually meant to ask about a trip from 6 to 16 June, since the period from 6 to 16 May is in the recent past.

If you enter on 6 June, or on any day between 27 May and 10 June, you will have to leave the Schengen area on or before 10 June. So the answer to your question is no, it is not okay, and yes, you have to travel between 25-05 to 10-06-2019.

  • @phoog your advice is always good and to the point. thanks to help me also i will get back with answer of my question soon. Commented May 23, 2019 at 13:59
  • @user97980 you can of course apply for a new visa, in theory, but there may not be enough time.
