Some other countries are less specific when it comes to how long you have to stay outside before you can reinstate the visa requirement under a visa waiver agreement. You need to fully document your movements. Suppose you see 90 days through the Schengen area and then travel across the border between Italy and Austria. Under the Visa Waiver Agreement between Australia and Austria, you have the right to stay in Austria for up to 90 days. However, in the absence of border controls between Italy and Austria, your passport does not use any document proving that you have “left” the Schengen area and entered Austria under the Visa Waiver Agreement. Later, an immigration officer might appear to have crossed the 90-day limit below which you have the right to stay in the Schengen area. If you are considered an offence and cannot prove otherwise, it is a serious offence with possible sanctions such as a fine, deportation, notification on your passport and entry ban. You need to validate your movements and one of the ways to do this is to keep all hotel and restaurant receipts as well as all plane, train and bus tickets. Once the Schengen Entry/Exit System is operational, the authorities of the EU Member State responsible for a bilateral treaty shall update the traveller`s registers containing the relevant entry and exit data.

The bilateral visa waiver agreement between France and Australia allows Australian passport holders to stay in France for three months within six months. This agreement was only signed after the creation of the Schengen area and refers to this agreement. I just returned from Croatia to Berlin and I told Mrs Zoll/Immigration that I wanted to stay in Germany for 3 months as part of the bilateral agreement and gave her a copy of the information. She laughed and said, “I know this is my job,” then she asked a few questions, and then put on the same normal passport entry stamp. ? I thought she would make a computer entry or some other stamp, since I had already used 63 days in the Schengen area. See how it works? “Please note that there is currently a separate bilateral agreement between Norway and Australia, which allows visa-free stays of up to 90 days in Norway in addition to daily stays in a non-Nordic Schengen country.
As a result, Australian citizens would not be denied entry to Norway due to time spent, for example, in Spain. Article 60 of Regulation (EU) 2017/2226 provides that visa-exempt third-country nationals may remain in the Schengen area only in exceptional circumstances or under a bilateral treaty for a period of 180 days. . . .
