I have a type C multiple entry visa, valid for a year until 06/08 but I was thinking to start my trip before it expires and end around 07/08 or 08/08. I then want to go to Schengen zone again, so my question is whether I can apply now and have a new Schengen visa perhaps for another year starting from 07/08 (right after my current one expires).
Or are they likely to just extend it for a day? Before I had 3, 6 and now 12 month visa. The point for me is to get it for another year, otherwise it is not worth it. I read about needing to cancel existing visa before you can get new one. I'm going to get it from the same embassy as before so I believe they can cancel it as its their own visa and then give me new visa for this trip and beyond? Does anyone know anything about that?
