I moved to France final 12 months and Im nonetheless ready for my titre de sejour, I’ve a sound récépisse and I do know this isn’t a sound doc to journey (again) to France. I’ve (after asking various occasions if this was okay) nonetheless already booked and paid for an costly journey within the Schengen space that’s to happen very quickly. The individuals on the préfecture have now washed their palms and deny they assured me it was alright to ebook this (over 6 months after I first utilized for the residence allow). I’ve already renewed my récépissé as soon as and the brand new one is about to run out quickly too.
However anyway, I am from a rustic which will get 90 days visa exemption for tourism. My query is: would it not be okay (and by this I imply authorized) to journey exterior Schengen for a number of days after which come again so I can get my passport stamped as if I have been right here merely for tourism? In my understanding with this stamp I might then don’t have any subject flying contained in the Schengen space, crossing borders and coming again to France afterwards, proper?
Folks on the préfecture usually are not actually pleasant and simply say I’ve to attend and dismiss my questions, so there’s not a lot use in asking them. So if that is one thing that’s allowed, I would prefer to have one thing quotable if potential in case I face one ‘completely random’ doc examine on the border.
To make clear a bit primarily based on the feedback beneath: I’ve no intention to lie, actually my query is about whether or not I can selectively use the visa-exception days I get from my passport to cross the borders and nonetheless preserve the validity of my residence in France by utilizing the récépissé.
