We are given Schengen visas (multiple entry/type C) from 01-04-2016 until 27-09-2016 with duration of stay of 90 days and Remarks: VIS FAMILIAR UE/EEE/SUIZA. With my daughter we entered Spain August 30, 2016 and returned to the Philippines September 23, 2016 without having obtained a residence card. We did not have a chance to process or apply for our residence card because we are running out of days.
The lawyer said it takes three months to process and advised us to apply for our residence card when we come back. We decided to go back immediately to the Philippines because my daughter begged us to continue her elementary grade and wanted to graduate as valedictorian, since she is a candidate for that title. She said it would only happen for once in her lifetime! The school only allows her 20 days absence.
Now we are planning to go back to Spain after graduation in April (2017) and my daughter is ready to continue her studies there and been granted her request to finished her elementary grade here in the Philippines.
