Long Sejour Temporaire Visa Question

Jump to last reply

My long sejour temporaire visa expires on October 31st and I need to stay in France for another three weeks. I have been given contradictory advice from different French consulates. One consulate said that I can exit the Schengen zone and spend a day in the UK, then return to France under the plain old under-90 days tourist rule. The other consulate said this is not possible and that my long sejour visa counts as consuming my 90 days as a tourist. According to them, it would only work if I had a student or employment visa.

Does anyone have first-hand experience with this? I'm in a bit of a bind since the consulate says they can't issue a new visa for an extended period, and that the prefecture office will not extend my visa.
Thanks.
