Getting around the Schengen zone

Jump to last reply

I am currently in Vienna, Austria and originally landed in Germany on September 25th 2013. I then continued my flight to Austria and stayed until November 11th 2013, again flying out of Germany that same day (a 51 day total in the Schengen zone). I then returned to Germany on December 30th 2013 and came to Austria once again. I have been here since then (this time in the Schengen zone for 30 days so far). So my total time in the zone is 81 days so far.

I realize that my first trip started the clock on my 90 and 180 day period. My plain ticket is for March 4th, which leaves me with about a month of overstaying if I stay here. I am wondering how I could get an extension with such short notice, being that I have plenty of savings to show that I am financial responsible. I am also a 100% service connected Navy veteran with a pension which even grants me a Department of Defense ID card, for entering military bases. I apologize if this seems like a topic that has already been answered but These circumstances might make my situation different.

I am willing to travel to a non-Schengen zone country like, Romania in particular, but the person that I talked to on the phone at the US consulate told me that Romania might not even except me with such little time left for me in the Schengen Zone. If I leave to non-Schengen country does my time in the Schengen zone stop and I can use the remaining 8 days to get to my flight in Austria and Germany in March?
