yeah , you are so right about that transition thing.
that's why first i'm getting Portuguese residence visa for first semester and then a tourist visa for 20 days from Spanish consulate in order to attend the introductory course in spain.

And I thought that according to rules, you are allowed to travel anywhere in the Schengen area without the need for a separate tourist visa (with a valid residence permit, of course) as long as the stay does not exceed 90 days.

The Khula Saand I have the same question as anurag too? With a Category-D visa, which I presume is what you will be getting for Portugal for a long stay, why would you need a 20 day tourist visa separately? Like I mentioned in the first post, AFA my limited knowledge goes, you can travel within the Schengen territory for as long as 90 days with a Category-D visa. You won't be needing a separate visa. Check once again!

i tabled the same facts to my program coordinator .
His reply
Quote:Schengen Visa issued by Portugal is not a valid documents to enter into Europe via Spain .so please make sure to have the required documents issued by spanish consulate to enter into Spain first to avoid any risk of being rejected at the Spanish borders/airport. according to article 5 of Spanish border regulations.

I contacted an Indian alumni(same course) in context of same query who works for GE in munich now , he told me the same.

The Khula Saand what are u getting, a Schengen visa to Portugal or a type-D visa? (Schengen visa is different from Category-D visa btw, Schengen visa is only a short stay visa valid only for a stay of 90 days max) Cz as far as I know, we are getting a Type-D visa to Netherlands (for a period of stay more than 3 months) which is valid in Netherlands but I can travel within the Schengen territory within three months of arrival to NL and stay there for upto a max period of 90 days! . If you are going to stay in Portugal are you not gonna get a Category-D visa too? In which case you should be able to travel to Spain as well without a separate visa right? I don't know. If you can clarify these doubts that are in my mind, then it'll be great Smile

i'm getting residence visa "visto para residência" , they don't have similar names for categories as NL got. with this i can easily move in Europe only after coming to portugal.
i'm getting this for a period of 4 month . i would stay in PT for 3.5 months only before moving to Nottingham UK .

Our visa is called "Machtiging Voorlopig Verblijf" (MVV) which is a temporary residence permit (we are supposed to take residence permit upon reaching NL) and supposedly its a Category-D visa as per the mail from the university. Category-D is a category of long stay visa or temporary residence permit in the Schengen area. Different countries have different names that's all.
Okay, I think I get your point now, fine fine. So it's the same thing. Since you are heading to Spain first, you'll need a tourist visa separately. Coz I think this Category-D thingy is valid for travel within the Schengen territory only once you have arrived in your country of residence! Since, we are heading to Netherlands directly, we can travel anywhere within the first three months. I guess same will be your case once you reach Portugal. The Khula Saand correct me if I am wrong!

It seemed to me from your post that you were going to Spain after your arrival in Portugal. That's why I asked the question. Thanks for the clarification.

I just got my visa a couple of days back at the Delhi Embassy and was handed an A4 document which had certain instructions on how to use the Visa. So, I thought I'd share, the most important point mentioned in the doc. We have been talking quite a lot about Category-D visa, its validity blah blah! This is something on the similar lines only. Atleast, for Netherlands this is what was mentioned. I guess this rule should be applicable for Visas to other countries as well. Anyway, for Netherlands I speak.

The document says that, your D-type visa is valid only for your destination country, so you should try and land there directly if possible. However, if you DO NOT find a direct flight to your destination, then you may go via another Schengen country without a separate visa. Also, if you are going via another Schengen country, then within 72 hours of arrival in that country you should land in your destination country. If this is not the case, you must report to the Border Controls for any further procedure that might be needed. Failure to do so may lead to deportation from the said country. So, like it has been said in a few of the earlier posts, if you plan to stay in any other country within the Schengen territory which is different from your destination country(as mentioned in your visa), you must obtain a tourist visa for that period.

@All:

I am in a situation.
I have got admit to uni1 and have already applied for German student VISA.

Yesterday, I got admit to uni2 to which I would like to join.

Can I goto uni2 with the VISA which I got from invitation letter of uni1 ??
Will the local rathaus at uni2 location register me ? (give me residence permit)

Or should I reapply for German student VISA with uni2 admit ?

I have heard from my seniors that it is possible. I haven't personally met anyone who has done that tough. So i cannot give you assurance here. The best person to contact would be the course coordinator.

When did you apply for Visa and which consulate?

Off edulix this semester!! Do not tag me, it is no good.

I applied for VISA on Jan 20th 2014 and got it on Feb 6th 2014 in Bangalore consulate.

If I call up German embassy in Bangalore they tel me to cancel the current VISA and reapply again with full sets of docus and VISA fees.

I dont have enough time and some people told there is high chance of rejection if you reapply. So I am thinking to go in current VISA and then look for procedures to change the local city in Germany.

Can you change the hyperlinks for the German Visa part to this thread. It has the compilation of all the existing Visa threads which will make it easier to navigate through. And also please correct spelling of "Deutschland".
