My gf is studying in France and holds a 6-months Type D (+1 Schengen transit) visa issued by the French Embassy. Apparently, this visa doesnt allow her to travel to other Schengen states (for a short weekend holiday) even though we Singaporeans are exempt from visas if we visit those countries for less than 90 days.
So I am asking anyone who has studied in France before and travelled to the neighbouring Schengen states (read: EU countries), what are the visa procedures you all did? Were you stopped by customs/immigration??
