6 Mths skilled job seeker returning to USA

Hello, I was a "skilled jobseeker" in norway the last 6 months. I am now returning back to USA through Iceland, I am wondering if they will have a problem with me overstaying my 90 days in Schengen land even though I had permission to stay here for 6 months. I have proof from police in Norway stating so. I am only taking the necessary detour to get back. Any advice or experiences ?

I dont understand your question - as far as I know its not the police that give you permission to stay longer than 90 days so I dont think what they say have any relevance...however I have no idea, neither will most people here. Its best to contact your consulate and ask.

Actually jamikins in some countries it is possible for the "foreigner" police to give permission to stay over the 90 days of a Schengen visa.

Sherminali, sorry I don't have an answer for you - I can only suggest you contact the Iceland Embassy

I have done, so and yes it is possible to have them extend your permit if you are a skilled worker. However they do not recommend traveling into another Schengen country wich is nearly impossible considering I need a connecting flight to California. (Southern California)

Don't understand what "necessary detour" you are talking about. why not fly directly from Norway (where you apparently had permission to stay longer) to the USA? No need to stop in Iceland and cause possible problems.

You might be able to transit through the UK which is not a Schengen country.

But UK often see Schengen rule violators as persona non grata and refuse them entry.

But they may not find out if you stay airside when catching your connecting US flight.

How would the UK know - you stay airside and don't go near an immigration official.

Alternatively you fly United to Newark and home from there.
