Last year I was not allowed to continue my trip to Croatia due to having only single entry Schengen visa. However when I was refused entry to Croatia the border guard from the Croatia side did not stamp anything nor give me a letter. I was however not allowed to go in, and they just asked me to go back to Slovenia and enjoy my holiday elsewhere in a Schengen country.

Question is now I got a valid multiple entry Schengen visa from the Spanish embassy in Buenos Aires will I be turned away at the border?

My concern is due to being denied entry from Croatia will I be recorded in the sis system? Even though at that time the Croatian border guard did not stamp any cancellation stamp, or ask me to sign any letter. The guard even said to just apply for a Croatian visa in Ljubljana if you wish or travel to Venice since it is in the Schengen area.

My concern was not allowed to enter Spain despite valid visa due to being denied entry from Croatia in last years trip.

  • Are you asking if you will be turned away from the Spanish boarder, or if you go back to Croatia? You have a visa allowing you entry Schengen countries (this means Spain is fine), if you want to go to Croatia then simply apply for a visa and you will be granted entry. – Uciebila Jun 5 '19 at 13:33

No, you're good for the Schengen states with your current visa. You can even enter Croatia on it since it's a multi visa.

For Croatia (and possibly Albania and North Macedonia) a single Schengen Visa C is not a valid visa

  • because it does not insure that you can return to the Schengen area

that was why you were refused entry and sent back to Slovenia.

Slovenia should have cancelled their Schengen exit stamp.

Legally you did not leave the Schengen area during this process.

There should be no negative SIS entry for that trip.

The fact that you now have had a new visa issued is also a sign that your travel history is ok.

This should not cause any problems on reentry.

  • Returning to the Schengen area is usually not a reason. It is that the Schengen countries check the visitors and if they trust that person for more than one visit, Croatia does not bother to check them again. – Willeke Jun 7 '19 at 12:59
