New Zealand nationals do NOT need a visa to visit Switzerland for up to 90 days over a 180-day period. New Zealand citizens benefit from this exemption from the short-stay visa requirement as long as they: Hello Mia, no, we have no waiver with the Czech Republic and there is no comment yet on this. Moreover, all the information contained in the article is up to date, it clearly states that the Czech Republic is not present in the countries of Waiver. Is there anything in particular that you are looking for in the comments? Let me know. According to the advice on your blog, I just finished about 340 days in Europe over 365 days. This year there have been a few exits and entrances to the Schengen area, and I have been dragged to the side three or four times and questioned. Most of the time, the agents just came from an excuse to send me on my way. In general, in the last 90 days I have been able to show access from a non-Schengen country, and instead of looking at the previous entry that must be on the computer, which shows that I recently had another extended stay, they showed me the door.

He gives him my passport, and he speaks Swiss German, so I don`t understand anything, but I hear him say a few times, New Zealand, tap on the front of my passport. He speaks like a father, so I guess he explains the intricacies of the visa rules that we have.

The message is not to leave Schengen from a place that does not actively authorize the use of the bilateral agreement. The Netherlands exempts New Zealand nationals in Category “D” from the Schengen visa requirement (the long-term visa in the Netherlands of more than 90 days, known as “MVV” in Dutch) – an exception that goes beyond the visa exemption for most other non-EEA and non-Swiss foreigners, who generally receive only an exemption of up to 90 days over a 180-day period.  At the end of the day, a New Zealand ETA may or may not be necessary for European citizens depending on certain aspects.
