How Long Until Someone Can Come Back to CH?

We had a student who took online courses come to stay with my family this past fall. She came from August 28th and stayed until November 8th, so about 3 weeks shy of her 90 day limit. She came as a tourist since she wasn't staying more than 90 days. Next semester, she is thinking about coming back to stay with us for a while in the early spring and again it wouldn't be more than 90 days. Will she be able to return again that soon or will she have to apply to come back? I don't know the rules about this sort of thing and I can't seem to find information that fits this situation. any information would be most helpful. Her online classes are based in the US, so she wouldn't be able to apply for a student visa here, she would simply be coming for another extended visit.

If she's come back 90 days later than it's fine.

Great. If she does come back, it would not be until March, so it would be well more than 90 days since she last left the country.

The rule is 90 days in any 180 day period.

Re: How Long Until Someone Can Come Back to CH?

Okay, so here are the exact numbers. From the date of her first arrival to her last departure was 70 days. She was gone in London for 8 days, so that means she was in Switzerland for 62 days. If she comes back mid January, ca she then stay for an additional 90 days since that would run into another 180 day cycle?

Time in London does not count, as it's outside the Schengen area. It's 90 days in the last 180 days.

As I and FMF have mentioned, it's 90/180 on a moving window of 180 days, so she still has 28 days until March.

Re: How Long Until Someone Can Come Back to CH?

So if she left November 8th, 90 days from that date is February 6th. If she enters on February 7th, her cycle resets and she would then have 90 more days?

That would work, as Tom & I have said it's not a cycle, it's 90 days in THE LAST 180.

No, the cycle resets 180 days after her first entrance (28 August). Between then, it depends.
