Travelling to Spain and Czech Schengen Visa

Post by MB243 » Tue Aug 13, 2013 1:17 pm

Hi guys,
I wonder of anyone can provide any insight in to my situation.

Below is my itinerary

22-Aug-13 to 25 Aug-13
Czech schengen visa valid from 22-Aug to 9-Sept 2013
single entry and duration of stay is 4 days

27-Aug 2013 to 1-Sept 2013

I have an appointment booked at the Spanish embassy at JVAC in London for tomorrow 14 Aug

My questions:
1) Will the Spanish embassy give me a visa even if its overlapping with Czech visa? As the Czech visa is only single entry, it will expire on 25 Aug after I return to UK, though its still valid until 9 Sept

2) If the answer to above is Yes then will I get my passport back by 21 Aug to travel next day?

Replies much appreciated!!!

In answering Q1. You cannot hold more than one valid schengen visa at the same time. One would need to be cancelled in order for you to apply for another one.

Q2. Highly unlikely you will get it back if you apply, on the JVAC in London website it says it takes a minimum of 5 working days to process.

If you explain yourself, you ought to be able to get a visa that covers both visits to Schengen zone.
