I have a visa issued by the French embassy in UAE. It will expire on 8th June. Unfortunately my travel plans have changed and now I need to enter France on 10th June. Is it still possible that I enter France on 7th June and leave the country within 16 days as the visa validity is for 16 days.
If your visa is valid until June 8, unfortunately, you must leave the Schengen Area by June 8.
Du: (From:) Date from which you are allowed to enter the Schengen Area
Au: (To:) Date by which you must leave the Schengen Area
These two dates specify the period for which your visa may be used (and not the length of stay allowed)
