Good day everyone,
My wife and I applied and got a tourist Schengen visa (type C) to Hungary. We entered and exited from Hungary respecting time frames.
When we came back, we were requested to provide our passports to the consulate for revocation or annulment of the visa. (It was in Arabic on the document)
When we inquired for the reason, the explanation was that we spent more days in another Schengen state than the days we spent in the issuing state.
What are the implications for this in terms of applying for future Schengen visas?
Note: we each have numerous Schengen type C visas on our passports, we never break the law or rules. And we have never had any issue at all.
Edit additional info:
We went for 21 days, we spent 4 nights in Hungary, 5 in Paris, 6 in Spain and a couple here and there in Belgium and Germany.
How did they find out? When receiving our passports with the visa, we were provided with a document we had to sign that required us to provide proof of accommodation, transportation and exit/entry to Schengen territory upon our return. Which we did of course.
The visa issued was type C (no exceptions for a specific member state). The time allowed 28 days. Single entry.
We stayed 21 days, entered and exited from the country providing the visa.
We did not break the law or time frame allowed for use or exceed the last date of exit.
