Expiration of Tourist VISA after getting Permission to Stay?

Jump to last reply

My wife has been in Italy with me for over 3 months, past the end of her tourist visam but she is now officially allowed to be in Italy as she has applied for her Permesso di Soggiorno (PdS) and is legally allowed to be in Italy.

My question is: Now that she is allowed to be here, she will have an ID card/etc. But they have not stamped her passport or added a VISA or anything. So her only stamp is the one she got when first entering months ago. *which was through a connecting flight at CDG, and then the entrance form in Italy.

Do other EU countries recognize her PdS as allowing her to freely visit other EU countries? Or is it that even though she is now sort of a resident of Italy, she still has used up her 90 days of tourism out of the 180 and has to stay in Italy until the end of the 180 since first entering.

Or is it that she looks like she is over her visa until she leaves the country? Even though she is allowed to be in Italy?

I wonder this even for myself. I have an Italian VISA page in my passport, but am I still limited to 90 days in non-Italy countries?

Thanks!
