Paris Trip - is it important which country issues the Schenzen visa ?

Jump to last reply

Hi fellow travelers (or travellers for those outside the US),

My parents have a Schenzen visa issued by Portugal since they were planning to visit Portugal. Their plans have changed now and they plan to visit France instead. The rules on the French consulate web site say that they MUST visit Portugal (i.e. the issuing country) during their Europe trip.

My question is: if they fly into Paris, stay in France for a week or so, and then return to their home country, how will Passport Control at the airport (i am making the assumption there is a PC desk at the CDG airport that departing travelers need to pass through) know whether they have been to Portugal or not ?

Thanks again for your time !!
