My Visa in Poland had expired and I applied for a new one so it means I'm allowed to stay in Poland but NOT to travel outside. I need to go back home to Mexico but there's no direct flight and I would have a layover in Belgium. Can I travel back home through country im not allowed to be in?

  • I had temporary residence permit and it expired and I applied again but it takes a year for them to issue a decision.
