Overstaying in the Schengen Zone - Please Advise!

Jump to last reply

We have been inside the Schengen Zone for about 6 months (specifically, Italy), and plan to stay at least another 6 months before heading back to the United States. We are well-aware that we are in violation of the Schengen Agreement, and we are also aware of the possible penalties. What we are hoping for is any advice on the best way to exit the Schengen Zone with the least amount of risk. (i.e. are some countries more lax than others?). Assuming that we are able to exit without any issues, and stay out for 90 days, will we be able to re-enter the Schengen Zone without worry, or is there a chance that they will take a second look at our initial travel inside the Schengen Zone? Thank you very much in advance!
