I have been residing in France for a year on a D type visa. Now, by the end of this year the visa will be over, and I would like to take advantage of being a Schengen visa free passport holder (annex II country, like Argentina, Australia or Singapore for example) to spend another 3 months as a tourist in Europe, immediately following my current stay.
- Do you think I should exit upon visa's expiry and re-enter the Schengen again, or can I just stay for the extra 3 months without leaving?
- In case I do exit end re-enter, I thought of doing that through the border in Andorra (it's not Schengen, but not sure if they stamp the passport), or make my way south to cross the border to Gibraltar (also not Schengen - and they do stamp for sure).
What would you advise on the situation?
