Travelling the Schengen while waiting for a residence permit

Jump to last reply

I'm having a few visa troubles. I'm an Australian citizen who entered Europe through Amsterdam on the 26th of August this year & got a stamp - went straight to Denmark where I have been studying at a school. There the school arranged for me to have a residence permit but it is still currently processing. I planned to travel to Norway, Sweden and France over this christmas break to visit friends and relatives and was told everything would be OK if I got a re-entry visa. So I applied for one writing the countries I was going to visit on it - but came across a very cranky immigration officer in Copenhagen who only wrote 'valid for Denmark' not 'valid for Schengen States' like other people at my school got. I am intending to fly from Stockholm to Paris but do not know if I will get held up or in trouble because of this visa. I flew to Oslo without any issues, and drove across to Sweden. I do have the option to drive back into Denmark if the visa is not valid but I have paid a lot of money for this ski holiday and would love to go. I don't know if French authorities will hold me up with this passport? No embassy or consulate has been able to give me an answer. The danish immigration officer told me the visa was only valid for Denmark, not for Schengen. It says 'type D' under visa type. Is there a risk I will get deported or fined or even go through a passport control on the way from stockholm to paris or back from Paris to Copenhagen? Ps. my tourist Schengen visa would have expired around early December as I went to the UK for about 5 days. So i'm only a couple of weeks past that. Thanks!
