Schengen Visa Question

I have a multiple-entry Schengen visa issued by the German consulate (valid till June 5th). I have already used the visa to visit Germany once but the visa is still valid since it is multiple entry.

I am traveling to Spain (via Paris) on May 25th before my visa expires.

Can I use my Schengen visa even though it is issued by Germany (and not Spain).

I think you should ask the French and Spanish consulates.

Unless your visa carries limited validity (rarely, but can happen), it's valid for the whole of Schengen area, so yes, you can use it to travel to France and Spain.

The Schengen visa is valid in the 25 member countries, irrespective of where it was issued.

Yes, with most Schengen visas, but there is a mechanism to limit the countries your visa is valid in under Schengen rules. This rarely happens with most bona-fide travellers, but if you are from Afghanistan or Iran, you may be issued with limited-validity visas.
