I have South Korean passport and I have my study visa which will expire on the 19th of September and a permesso di soggiorno which will expire on the 3rd of Sept.
So far from the last day of May (31 may) I am staying in Korea for my vacation but I still need to continue my study at the university in Florence, I am going back to Italy in the last day of August, and will go to France on the 2nd of September to see my grandma (the day before my permesso expires) and will come back to Italy at 11th of September.
I thought there is no problem because I still have a valid study visa. Of course I know that I need to renew my permesso di soggiorno to live in Italy. And the reason I thought there is no problem was that I have been hearing that I can stay in Schengen countries around 90 days without visa. As a traveller. Isn't it true?
- One of my friend just told me that i will not be allowed to re enter Italy with expired permesso di soggiorno, even though my study visa is still valid.
If I won't be able to enter Italy again, where should I go and what should I do? And generally what is the penalty?
- At least to make sure about me to stay in Italy, I will bring some documents that I applied to extend my permesso again. Even though I bring some documents (as evidence) to show that I already applied to make a new one, does it matter?
