Ok, so i have a pretty strange case going on. I’m an American citizen who is based in a non EU country in Europe.
I started studying in Milan, Italy in October 2016, got my study visa, then got my permit with no problems. I didn’t know that in Italy you have to renew it in like June, and thought i could do it in September.
When i arrived in Italy, i lost my wallet and a lot of things started going bad, including some personal problems. i didn’t pay the school tuition, but stayed in Italy. I left in December, and came back mid January, and i thought they wouldn’t let me in since the 90 days/180 were finished. to my surprise i was let in, and i stayed there until the 31st of May. when leaving no one said anything at all, just left.
After my personal problems were over, i tried re registering at the uni, but since i didn’t pay i need to reapply and everything, which i can do, but i need to go to Italy to get some necessary documents from the uni and from my friends flat.
i have a ticket to Italy on the 2nd of October, and i’m worried that there might be problems at the border patrol. Since i’m entering not from EU, i will need to go through passport control. Is there a chance i won’t be let in or have to pay a fine? When leaving, had i overstayed, wouldn’t i have gotten a fine/ban from at the border ? and i was away for over 120 days, so did the clock reset and i can just go through with the normal 90/180 system? It’s a complicated issue i know, but if you can answer i’d be really greatful!
