Need a passport stamp from Switzerland

Jump to last reply

My husband and I own a house in France. We want to stay 6 months in France as he is handicapped with a stroke and it would be easier on him than flying back to the USA and then turning around and flying back to France. Not to mention the very high cost of business class tickets on Air France.

I have read that the Swiss do not stamp passports. So how can I do this?A visa is out of the question as we live 300 miles from San Francisco. We must go to the embassy in San Francisco, apply, return to Eureka, Ca & wait & wait. We must do this for every trip. But my husband can not stand the stress to do the Visa thing.

Friends in France tell us, after 90 days, to leave the country, get our passport stamped in a non EU country and return after a week. Is this the way to do it?

Thanks
