I am Egyptian, and I have multiple-entry Schengen visa from France which I already used few weeks ago. Now I need to travel to Romania and I need to know if I can travel directly from Cairo to Romania via my Schengen visa or I have to enter first a Schengen state then to travel to Romania. Also I want to know if I traveled from Cairo to Romania through Frankfurt, will my passport be stamped at Frankfurt ?

I need to know if I can travel directly from Cairo to Romania via my schengen visa or I have to enter first a schengen state then to travel to Romania.

You can travel directly to Romania; assuming you have not violated the 90/180 rule for Schengen visas, your visa is valid for the duration of your stay, and your passport is also valid for the duration of your stay.

Also I want to know if i traveled from Cairo to Romania thru transit at Frankfurt, will my passport be stamped at Frankfurt?

Yes, it will be stamped as this is your point of entry into the Schengen zone; even if you are on transit.

    If you are traveling from outside the Schengen zone to Romania and your only stop within the Schengen zone is Frankfurt, I think you will stay in international transit and your passport will not be stamped, (but I have never done it myself.) – Willeke Aug 21 '16 at 9:48
  • @Willeke Yes, that's right. – davidvc Aug 21 '16 at 10:41

I'd like to correct the answer above:

Also I want to know if i traveled from Cairo to Romania thru transit at Frankfurt, will my passport be stamped at Frankfurt?

No, it will not be stamped IF you fly Cairo-Frankfurt-Otopeni. Romania is not part of Shenghen, so you will not go through passport control in Frankfurt. You will go through passport control in Romania only. Have done it myself.

  • but i will enter romania with no issue? – Tassem7 Aug 23 '16 at 17:35
  • so i can travel to romania with a direct flight and no need to travel first to a schengen state? – Tassem7 Aug 23 '16 at 17:36
  • The answer is "yes". However as far as I know, there are no direct flights between Cairo and Bucharest yet, and your best option would likely be flying through Athens. Please let me know if you find a direct one. – George Y. Aug 23 '16 at 23:06
