If I have a Schengen visa issued from Hungary for 20 days how many days do i have to stay in Hungary itself and how many may I travel outside of Hungary in the Schengen area? Additional info:

  • I am Russian
  • I will enter the EU in Austria
  • I will exit the EU in Hungary
  • Visa is issued by the embassy (Hungary) in Russia
  • You may have to enter the country that issued visa first (Hungary), as per schengen rules. eeas.europa.eu/sites/eeas/files/… – pbu May 4 '17 at 9:14

    @pbu There is no such rule, FAQ notwithstanding. But what in this document makes you think there is such a rule? – Relaxed May 4 '17 at 10:18
  • I am sorry apologies to OP, you are right @Relaxed. It says there As a general rule you may cross any Schengen border with visa issued by any Schengen country. – pbu May 4 '17 at 11:50
  • Was your visa issued IN Hungary as you say (which would be a rather special situation, so please explain more about why that happened), or issued somewhere else BY a Hungarian consulate/embassy? – hmakholm left over Monica May 4 '17 at 11:53
