Re: Schengen Visa

Spanish is your mother tongue? Why not apply at the Spanish consulate!

some countries ask for Direct Airside Transit Visa even if you are staying in the airport.

Re: Urgent info needed on Schengen Visa please!!!!

Can be tricky at some airports, where there is no direct corridor from the Schengen/National terminal to the international terminal.

Except if it's a first world country like the United States.

As long as you have a B permit or C permit in switzerland there is no problem. You are allowed to pass through the schengen countries as a transit to other countries. the maximum period allowed is 5 days.

GBer has slipped a little
USA (non-EU) B-Permit & Schengen?

I just entered the country recently with a 1 entry visa sticker. I have registered with the town hall and should be receiving my B-Permit within a few days. Do I need a Schengen to come in and out the country? It's complicated by the fact that I am a US passport holder in Switzerland (non-Schengen), but I have a 1 entry sticker... My company is not sure what to make of it. Any ideas?

Should taking my B-Permit and my employment contract paper be enough to travel within the EU?

Thanks in advance!

GBer
