Re: Clarification regarding traveling out of Schengen area while permit being process

I wrote a mail to the federal migration office stating my case and I got this reply after a few days:

Quote:
As a Croatian national you are allowed to stay up to 90 days within six months in Switzerland and the Schengen-area without a visa.

Since you entered only three weeks ago you can travel back to Croatia and enter again as a tourist even if there is a residence permit pending.

So there is no problem with your travel plans.

Wish you a nice Christmas holiday!

Yours sincerely

But in the end it was a moot point because a day before the response arrived I got a letter from the Gemeindehaus that my permit was done and to come pick it up. Still, it's another clarification that we can put on the sticked threads and point to this thread. Thanks to all who replied.

The very helpful visa employee told me it wouldn't be a problem since I hold a Croatian passport and as such don't need a visa for short stays in Schengen space, and I would have been in CH for just a few weeks by that time.
If they told you so, then it probably is so. Who else than an embassy employee should know more.

Aah, but one does not always get correct information first try, from any source. Remember that the people at the desk, or on the phone, are only humans, so prone to not knowing everything. Although the poster ended up getting her visa quickly, I think it was a good idea that she was trying to double check - and getting the information in writing never hinders.

My compulsion to double check everything regarding this kind of things stems from my experience during my studies in Italy, where I would regularly get conflicting information between the Italian consulate and the police station (questura), which really made life difficult sometimes. Of course, each of these instances, especially the police, didn't care about what the other says, always insisting that their interpretation is right. The end result is having to jump trough hoops to please them...
