Schegen Question- Leaving w/Visa and Reentry as Tourist

Jump to last reply

I am an American. For the past ten months I have been living and working in France under a student visa. I wanted the possibility to travel more in the Schegen area after my visa was up and from what I have read online my best course of action was to leave the Schegen area (to the UK for example) and then renter after my visa has expired as a tourist. So that is exactly what I did. However I took a bus from France to the UK and as a result did not receive an "exit" stamp in my passport, only a entry stamp into the UK. Should I have a problem getting back into France? My plan was to visit in France a bit more before going home, flying out through Brussels. The entry stamp in my passport clearly shows I entered the UK, therefore leaving the Schegen area, but there is no exit stamp.

I'm not sure what my possibility of recourse is now. My visa expired today so I can't exactly pop in and out again. Should there be any issue?
