Time spent in Hungary on a Hungarian residence permit does not count towards the 90/180 rule. Time spent in other Schengen countries does count, but that is not generally enforced. The rest of this answer assumes that you haven't been in any other Schengen countries. The 90 day limit will be fully reset on the 91st day of your residence permit's validity. ...

For now, plan as if the travel goes on as per the flights you were booked on but I would not book thing where you do not get your money back if you do have to cancel. Most likely you will be offered an alternative that gets you from Lisbon to Bergen and from Bergen to Lisbon around the same time, but if no other flights are available it might be a few days ...

When flying, or actually travelling in general, within the EU, there are no tax-free sales at all, neither to departing, nor arriving passengers. There are still many stores at airports, harbours or ferries labelling themselves 'tax-free', 'duty-free' or perhaps more common 'travel-value' shops, pretending to offer cheaper products, but all sales are still ...

The proposed directive has not yet been fully adopted yet. The text proposed by the EU Commission was substantially modified by the EU Parliament in March 2019, so it's probably back to the EU Commission and the EU Council for more changes. One of the main changes was the move of the last year for "seasonal time changes" as they call it from 2019 to 2021. ...

Third country nationals can only benefit from EU law when they join or accompany an EU citizen making use of their treaty rights in the UK. That's true for short-term visits (with or without EEA family permit) and for longer term stay. If they live with their EEA citizen sponsor, they are certainly allowed to study in the UK. Otherwise, they are still ...

While the European Commission voted to abandon Daylight Savings Time, this must be approved by Council of European Union and the European Parliament according to Wikipedia. Therefore it is not a done deal. This might mean the exact terms and deadlines might be altered before final approval but in its current form, the change would happen in 2021 either in ...

I noticed that this older set of answers could use the following updated information regarding the US/Polish agreement. The agreement made in April 1991 which allows US Nationals, or legal residents, to remain in Poland up to 90 days at any time has been moved to a new location online. I tracked it down because I wanted a copy for use at the border crossing ...

With a valid Swiss D visa, you can travel in other Schengen countries as if you had a 90/180, multiple-entry Schengen visa. You cannot travel to EU countries which are outside the Schengen area (e.g. Ireland, or currently the UK). Days spent in Switzerland do not count for the 90/180 rule. Days spent in Schengen countries other than Switzerland count. The ...

In the EU airports I am familiar with you either can not buy any of the 'taxfree' or specially priced 'buy before you fly' items when coming through the airport shopping area on your way out, as only with a valid boarding pass (and it will be scanned) you can buy. Or you are not coming through the normal shopping area at all. There are airports with 'shops ...

There was no need to exit and re-enter and no stamp was required. To complicate matters the residence card itself was lost right before we left. We got a police report stating it was lost and there was no issue leaving the country. My fiancée was able to re-enter with a full 90 days on a tourist visa.
