Travel within Schengen while L permit is in progress

My L permit in undergoing extension and will expire in 15 days. I might be travelling to a Schengen country for a short trip in Feb 1st week. The worst case scenario being that the permit is still undergoing process by then, kindly suggest if this would be a problem and that I do not need a re-entry visa since I am not going out of Schengen area . Thanks!

Re: Travel within Schengen while L permit is in progress

Yes, of course it's a problem if you don't have a valid permit. If your permit's not valid, then you have no right to be in Schengen. Maybe, if you get a kind passport control person on your return they may check the database and see if you have a new permit. But then again, they may not. Best advice - don't travel until you have your new permit.

Yes it's a problem and without permit, you may well be denied re-entry. Whether you leave Schengen or not doesn't matter - you have no permit for Schengen at all. Ask the authorities for a written confirmation that your permit is being extended, that should be enough. Or simply wait until you have the new permit.

Alternatively, you may need to apply for a one time return visa. Immigration office issues this when your permits is in the processing stage and you really need to travel out of Switzerland.

Re: Travel within Schengen while L permit is in progress

You definitely need to get a re-entry visa for travelling around in Schengen area. You can just go to the immigration office with photos. It may cost around 90 chf i guess.
