I have a current Schengen visa from France valid from 15-4-2016 till 15-7-2016 and have a trip in summer to Italy and France from 7-7-2016 till 15-7-2016 which is the last day of my visa validity.
I prefer to not take this risk and return on the last day (flights delays or cancellations or other situations...)
So I was thinking if I can have a new visa from Italian consulate which will be certainly given to me for some extra days after my intented return.
The France consulate told me I can cancel my visa without prejudice to ask for a new visa from italian embassy.
The question is: will the Italian embassy accept it?? Especially that my actual visa cover all my stay in summer but I only want to eliminate any risk for returning on the last day.
The biggest issue is that I will have an internal Schengen flight from
Italy to France with Ryanair and they ask in their policy to check the
visa... In the day of this flight the will be 4 days remaining in my
visa. Do they have the right to deny me boarding due to this remaining
There are no visa checks on intra-shenghen flights. I am not sure what they would be checking for anyway - travel between Schengen member states is visa-free (that's the whole point of the entire Schengen framework).
However, even if Ryanair checks your visa - it is valid till midnight of the date stamped. They should not deny you boarding.
