I am a Burundian, I have a Romanian Short Stay Visa. I have bought a round trip ticket through Brussels Airlines from Burundi-Romania/Romania-Burundi. The second itinerary is half operated by Tarom RO (overnight transit in Brussels) and by Brussels Airlines. This situation will require me to claim my luggage once in Brussels (meaning going through immigration) and to check-in (again going through immigration) so that I can wait for my connection fight. Since I won't have a Schengen Visa (Romania is not part of the Schengen zone yet):
- will I be allowed to claim my luggage and check-in?
- Will I be allowed to stay overnight at the airport?
- Tarom Airlines will not register my luggage until the final destination as the waiting time is more than 45 minutes, but since I bought the round trip through Brussels Airlines isn't there a way for these 2 companies to coordinate the whole trip?
