I am from a Southeast Asian country and study in England. I want to travel to Europe this October, first from 1st October to 10th October, then come back from Madrid to England on 10th, go again to Greece on the evening of 11th October.
I applied at Spanish consulate in London and it may take 4 weeks until I get my passport back. I just want to ask if it is possible for me to get a multiple entry Schengen visa that covers both trips? Worse, can I get refused by having one day break in England? In my application, I put that I will come back England for one day break before my second part. I was not thinking my visa application would have problem (I did have one Schengen visa before from Italy and I travelled according to my plan); however, as much as I read from this forum, I start worrying that I might get my visa refused because of unclear reason to reenter the Schengen area.
Please anyone has some experience, can you tell me your thinking on this? Should I get the visa refused as a whole? Or would I get the visa rejected for the second trip?
My background is as follows:
Nationality: a Southeast Asia, study in England with a Tier 4 visa
travel history: had another tier 4 visa before, plus a Schengen visa from Italy for 30 days, visa to visit Turkey for 6 months (not mentioned in my application)
Sufficient finances (total £7000), booked all hotels and night buses for two trips plus all travelling tickets, even trains and night buses (I will travel by sleep train twice).
Mentioning clearly in the application that my trip has two parts, separate by one (two) days (from 10th to 11th in England). But I didn't explain why (it is just I want to come back to England from Spain and go to Greece from London, just purely my preference and I want to recharge myself).
In Greece I will join with a friend who has a Schengen visa already and travel with them. However I dint mention the friend in my application because I don't want to get it complicated (because they are not in the UK at the moment and they have a Schengen visa already). In my flight tickets, the name of my friend also appears.
