I am a Ghanaian by birth but have Argentine citizenship. In 2015, I first went to Ghana, then went on to France where my passport was stamped.

I spent one month in France, 2 weeks in Germany, 2 weeks in Italy, 2 weeks in Belgium. When I took the bus from Brussels to London, I didn't get an exit stamp. I returned to Argentina from England; my passport was not stamped on exit there either.

I traveled from Argentina to Ghana and on to Turkey, where I am now, and my passport has an entry stamp. I'm planning to take a bus from Turkey to other areas in Europe.

Can I enter the Schengen area without a problem, since I didn't get an exit stamp from any of the Schengen states I visited in 2015 before going to London?

  • I don't quite understand your question. The UK doesn't issue exit stamps. Did you get an exit stamp when you left the Schengen area? – Zach Lipton May 7 '17 at 0:05

    Your write up is all over the place. Can you edit it and lay out sequentially and clearly where and where you went and where you did not get stamps. Very confusing. – user 56513 May 7 '17 at 0:06
  • Hope my editing now helps @paul – rich wherrett May 7 '17 at 0:37

Ah, the laissez-faire French! In all seriousness, in the future always request a stamp if they're trying to break the law (because not stamping you out of laziness is against the law)

Being that you have a UK entry stamp, you should be fine.
