Applying for a visa while traveling abroadMy boyfriend and I are planning on traveling through Europe for about 6 months. We already know about the 90 day period visa free but we were wondering (and hoping) that we could just apply for our visas while we are in Europe. Since the application asks for a return date, that makes it really hard for us to go ahead and apply since we don't know our return date. Does anyone know if this is a possibility?

1Various countries are not yet signed up to the Schengen agreement; these include Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova, Belarus, Russia, UK, Ireland and most of the Balkans - but the majority of Europe is part of the scheme. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schengen_area for more info.
If you are intending to get a long stay tourist visa to beat the 90 day extension, these exist for some countries for some nationalities, but advance applying is required, and they're pretty hard to get from what people say. (I wouldn't know, I hold a EU passport).

What you are writing (and asking) is full of inconsistencies ..
If this is true then the next sentence
So what kind(s) of visas are you thinking about here?
Any type of visa other than the Schengen zone tourist visa will be specific for one and only one country.

6Why oh why do people ask visa questions without mentioning their nationality? Or without wondering if readers can make any sense out of their questions?
There is no visa-free period for Europe, I assume you mean the Schengen Area but I've already wasted quite some time on this forum assuming things.
So before I even start using my brains to help you find a solution, could you please use yours and rewrite your post in such a way that it includes all the required information about yourself as well as clearly phrased questions?
Thank you for your understanding, and welcome to Thorn Tree.

7A new poster who has probably not read the FAQs or coummunity guidelines, done any searching of existing posts etc. before jumping in and asking a question that makes no sense whatsoever.
The TT is not a travel agency margrosson. You are expected to do your homework FIRST and then post intelligent questions. It gets very annoying for regular posters to read the same questions with insufficient information provided, over and over again.
What is your nationality and what countries do you want to visit? What country do you want to apply for a visa for and what kind of visa?
