France Visa waiver bilateral agreement with Australia
On the follow up of the investigation regarding the Australia Visa waiver bilateral agreements in Schengen space, below is the reply we received from the France Embassy in Canberra.
The France embassy was one of the embassies that gave us a not so clear reply regarding our query on the bilateral agreements, and their further clarification regarding what could happen when visiting the other Schengen countries that may not have similar agreements was also not very clear.
Extract from email received from the France embassy in Canberra dated 23 October 2018:
"Australian citizens have a visa waiver only for the 90 first days of their whole stay in the Schengen area, this means France should be the first entry if they want to stay the entire 90 days period."
***ANYONE that wishes to use this information to plan their travels within Schengen space is at their own risk and should seek further confirmation from the embassy of the relevant countries and their border police for further details on these agreements, we are just sharing some of our findings and will not accept any responsibilities for the information stated in this post and related posts. This information was received by email from the listed countries embassies in Canberra when queried about the agreements, their replies are copied to post of each listed country on the lists above, for reference only.
