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 ...

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 ...

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. ...

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.

A residence permit or card issued in uniform format (list) from a Schengen state exempts you from any visa requirement for stays of no more than 90 days in any 180-day period. Usually, recently issued residence permit should be in a credit-card format with EU bull symbol on it. For intended stays on the territory of the Member States of a duration of no ...

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 ...

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. ...

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 ...

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 ...

There are at least some airports where you can do this. In general tax free purchases are for people departing for international destinations, on the presumption that the goods will be exported. Checks are made to establish this. There are airports which allow tax free purchases for those arriving from international destinations, on the presumption that ...

You can make the trip as long as you return to Spain while your passport is still valid. There is no extra passport validity requirement for internal Schengen travel. To avoid complications, you should probably avoid itineraries that require a layover outside the Schengen area. The Schengen area has a requirement for short-term visitors that passports be ...
