I am an Indian citizen and I was granted a visa from the French Consulate. It says that my visa type is Long Stay "D" valid for France (sauf CTOM).
I am going to Nice (France) via Munich (Germany), would I need a transit visa for Germany ?
This is possible by article 5 paragraph 4(a) of the Schengen Borders Code (Regulation (EC) No 562/2006)
third-country nationals who do not fulfil all the conditions laid down in paragraph 1 but hold a residence permit or a re-entry visa issued by one of the Member States or, where required, both documents, shall be authorised to enter the territories of the other Member States for transit purposes so that they may reach the territory of the Member State which issued the residence permit or re-entry visa, unless their names are on the national list of alerts of the Member State whose external borders they are seeking to cross and the alert is accompanied by instructions to refuse entry or transit;
