I have a Schengen visa stamped on my passport from France.
The place of issue is Dubai (mentioned on the visa).
I had applied for it with my earlier Dubai Residency visa, however now it is cancelled and I am back in India. But my Schengen visa is still intact.
So the question is can I travel to the desired schengen country from India rather than from Dubai (rest of the itinerary remains unchanged).
There can be two ways:
I cancel my preciously booked ticket from Dubai to France and get a new ticket from India to France
I take a flight from India to Dubai (transit visa) and catch the same flight from Dubai to France
