My trip consists of Spain, Italy, Croatia, Austria. USA Advance Parole expiring Jan 15th, I planned a Schengen trip from December 16th to January 6th.
Schengen visa scheduled at the Spanish Houston Consulate on Monday. Would they decline as my Parole is ending within 3 months of my planned return date?
France does not appear to have that condition. Alternatively, should I apply at the French consulate (interview scheduled on October 16th)?
Should I try both or ignore Spain and only try France? I can replan my travel to include Paris and enter first there (though it appears very costly now)?
