Traveling within Schengen zone while waiting for a residence permit?

Jump to last reply

I was recently hired to work in Slovenia and the company wants me to come back asap so I can be trained while they wait for my work permit and residence permit to process.

My only concern is that my tourist visa will expire while I'm waiting for everything to process (I have already clocked 83 days out of the allowed 90 in the Schengen zone). I've voiced my concerns but everyone seems to think there won't be a problem, although no one can point out to me an actual law that allows you to wait in the Schengen zone while a residence permit is processed.

I am supposed to pick up my residence permit in either Austria or Croatia (I don't know why it's not Slovenia), so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. I'm worried that if it ends up being Croatia rather than Austria I'll have problems at the border.

So, does anyone know anything about this? If I do overstay my tourist visa will I still have problems, or will it be okay since I'm waiting for a residence permit? WIll it make a difference how long I've overstayed (I could get my residence permit in a week, or it could be months. I have no way of knowing.)?

I'm really not trying to break any laws here, but I also don't want to lose my job because I can't get out there fast enough. Help!
