Anyone know whether you are supposed to check out of Schengen and get your passport stamped when you leave
? I've never done this before. I know for sure that you don't
check out of the UK when you leave; only when you enter.
I don't want to make any mistakes
, as I'm skating on thin ice in Schengen with more than 90/180 but with a temporary Finnish residence permit
, so technically legal
. I would hate to have to prove it, however, as my temporary residence permit
is only in Finnish, which I doubt anyone here can read. Besides that, it's temporary.
I have just left Schengen by air to go to London for a day on business. The Danish passport guy didn't look through my passport at all, or ask any questions. I don't know whether this relaxed attitude is representative. There is, apparently, no database of Schengen entries/re-entries, so the only way a question would arise, AFAIK, is for the border guard to go through your entry/exit stamps.
