I am currently working as a teacher in Spain and have a 1 year residency permit that expires June 30th. I was planning a trip to Croatia, which is not in Schengen, and flying back into Madrid on June 30th and flying back to the US on July 2nd.
Will I have problems entering Spain on the day my visa expires, or will I be able to re-enter on a tourist visa (as in the 90 days you're allowed to be in Schengen without a long-stay visa)?
In addition, I will be flying to Greece in July - does anyone know if I will have problems entering Greece since I have technically been in Schengen for around a year without having left for 3 months?
Anyone have any experience with this? All the rules seem very confusing!
