I have a US passport which I have used in the last year to visit germany several times. After my short visits (5-10 days max) I return back to my home country Turkey (non schengen country) and spend most my time there.
However in November 1st, I plan to go to Germany and use the maximum of the 90 days limit.
My question is, since I have been in and out of Germany in the past, how much does this reduce my 90 day limit. How can I calculate how much time I can stay in Germany? As I have lived mostly in Turkey, does my first 90 day period start fresh when I visit Germany in november, or does my past visits to Germany count?
heres a list of times I have been in germany in the last year. The rest of the time, I have been living in non schengen country, Turkey.
* 12.10.13 - 19.10.13 (6 days)
* 26.02.14 - 27.02.14 (2 days)
* 19.04.14 - 23.04.14 (5 days)
* 04.06.14 - 08.06.14 (5 days)
* 12.07.14 - 21.07.14 (10 days)
* 01.10.14 - 07.10.14 (7 days)
So if I go on November 1st, in the last 90 days, I would have been in germany for 7 days, non schengen country for 83.
In the last 180 days I would have been in germany for 22 days, while in non schengen country for 158.
If I go to germany on november 1st, how long can I stay?
