Travel Visa Questions

Jump to last reply

So i am fully aware of the rules and regulations of the Schengen Area for Americans (90 Days in 6 Month period). I have done my research on this topic a lot because it is potentially a be a big adjustment to my travels.

My question is that if i can acquire a travel visa for somewhere like France or Spain, for staying outside the 90 day regulations, that visa only allows stay in that individual country outside the 90 day rule RIght??? I had a conversation with a young lady and she said that if you get like a 180 day travel visa for an individual country (in the Schengen Area) that as Americans we are still free to travel within any of the other 26 countries for that whole 180 days (such as being out of the individual country for over 90 days and not be penalized?

P.S. I am aware of the areas outside of the Schengen Area that i am allowed to travel more freely without the 90 day thing hanging over my head, but i would rather not worry at all about outstaying my welcome.
