Passport not stamped on entry into Rome, hassle exiting Frankfurt

Jump to last reply

Anyone else experience this? We came into Europe in Rome and the immigration guy did not stamp our passports. We spent a little over a week in Italy and then flew from Florence to Frankfurt to come back to Canada. The immigration woman in Frankfurt was quite unpleasant to us about not having entry stamps. She wanted our boarding passes from our flight into Rome, which we couldn't seem to find. I usually save them, but this was pure vacation, with no one covering the airfare, so I wasn't so careful. In the end, after chastising us multiple times and telling us to make sure to get one next time, she let us go.

I imagine the fear is that we might have over stayed our 90 days? Otherwise, I can't imagine why they would care, since we were actually leaving.
