My mother is a Sri Lankan citizen and she is currently in Italy on tourist visa valid from January 1, 2015 to February 28, 2015. She applied for family reunion (while in Italy on tourist visa) documents from Italy this February 15th waiting for approval. Both my brother and sister live in Italy and my mom applied through my sisters for family reunion. This is not about whether she gets the family reunion approval, but about her stay validity with tourist visa till she gets her approval.
Her Schengen tourist visa is valid only for 2 months and I heard when entering there's 90 day period that she can stay in Italy (which means she can stay till April 1st?). If this 90 day period is over, is she overstaying? She applied for family reunion can she wait till she gets those family reunion documents and to apply for family reunion while she stays there in Italy?
