I am an Indian citizen in the US with valid H1B visa. This is my travel plan across Europe:
- Flight from US to London
- Take the Eurostar train from London to Paris
- Visit other Schengen visa valid countries
- Travel to Turkey (visa on entry for Indian citizens with valid Schengen visa)
- Fly back to US from Turkey
I understand that I need both UK and Schengen visa, but I have the following concerns about my visa applications based on my travel itinerary:
For both UK visa, would my flight ticket which shows US-LON-ISTANBUL-US be a valid exit point? Is it sufficient to show my eurostar ticket from London to Paris as a valid exit proof?
For the Schengen visa, my flight ticket does not have entry/exit points in any Schengen country. Would that be an issue? I will apply for the visa at the French Consulate (main destination).
