  • Think of it this way: For the purpose of the short term visa Schengen area is one big country so your only concern is an external border. The posts here mention entry and exit to "Schengen Area" not any single Schengen State.

Yes, you will be OK (provided everything else is in order). For this purpose, you can look at the the whole Schengen area as a single country. You can only enter from a non-Schengen country once but you can leave and enter a particular Schengen country as many times as you want as long as you are not leaving the area.

There can always be some random passport check (it seems somewhat common when coming from Italy) but you won't get an entry or exit stamp when traveling between France, Italy and Switzerland. In fact, there probably won't be a police check at all, even if you are flying.

  • So you mean to say your allowed to have enter and exit as many as you can from schengen area.. e.g. I can go to Germany and from Germany i can go to Italy and again I can come back to Germany as many as I can ?
