Me and my girlfriend have a situation and we’re not sure how to find the answers...
She’s from Argentina and I am Swedish. We’re talking about marrying but we want to wait a little bit longer, so we can’t use the spouse visa method yet.
We’ve decided that we want to live in Portugal together. And I am close to renting an apartment in the city we have chosen. I’m an EU citizen so personally I could move there immediately and live there permanently. And back in Sweden I still have spare space in my parents house. And there are also nice hotels to get variation.
What’s the best way to get as much time together as possible?
Could we do the following?
- We go to Portugal together and she stays the maximum allowed length of time in that country.
- Then we take a flight to Sweden, and stay the maximum time.
- Then back to portugal.
Is it possible to bunny-hop like that to stay together in Europe?
We don’t like Argentina since they target white Europeans like myself (for scams, robberies, corrupt police, etc) and it’s not safe for me there at all and she doesn’t want me to risk that. So we’re trying to find a way to spend uninterrupted time together without involving Argentina.
We would be super grateful for any guidance. All of these immigration/travel rules are brand new to us… and we barely even know what info to search for!
