I applied for a Schengen visa for me and my family, and in the application I wrote my date of entry 14-03-2019 (Zurich) and date of exit 29-03-2019 (Amsterdam). I even bought air tickets for the same dates. My visa arrived and shows valid for 15 days, date of entry is 14-03-2019 until 29-03-2019.

I’m worried as per calculation, if I enter on 14-03-2019 then my 15 days would be completed on 28-3-2019. But when I ask the VSF Global agent in Riyadh, he told they will calculate days from the next day so you will finish your days on 29th march 2019 so nothing to worried about. Do I need to be worried?

Hi Asghar khan,

I'm afraid I'm not an expert on this. As I understand it, any Schengen visa is valid for 90 days, with a specified number of entries and exits in and out of the Schengen area. In that case it would not be an issue. But I recommend to check with the embassy that issued your visa, if you like a second opinion on the advice of the agent.
