Hope this is the right place to ask this. My partner and I have a situation and we don’t know what to do.
We live in Spain and soon we will move to the US. She is American and I’m Spaniard. She is here with a student visa, which granted her the ability to move in the Schengen zone. Her student visa is expiring on May 31st and will go back to the US by mid-July as we are selling everything we have, sending stuff home, and the likes.
Now, for personal reasons, we planned a trip to Greece and Italy in June, just a few days after her student visa expires. That’s the first problem. But I was researching and it seems that with her American passport, she can legally enter Spain, Greece, and Italy on tourist terms, which seems perfect. Is this correct?
Then, researching and thinking a lot about this, my partner recalled that Europe banned US travelers because of COVID-19. So, if instead of having a valid student visa, she is planning to use her American passport instead, the ban would apply to her? I mean, she is already in the EU. Does the ban apply to her case?
After leaving Spain to live in the States, coming back to do this long-awaited trip would be very difficult. So, do you think is doable?
