Schengen Agreement New Zealand
and it seems that the same is true for Iceland. Here is das INZ-Betriebshandbuch, which mentions bilateral exemptions with New Zealand. This is for foreign citizens applying for a NZ visa, but if these agreements are bilateral, they can be interpreted as NZers applying for visas/permits for those countries. Hello, I flew from Warsaw to London a week ago after spending almost six months in the Schengen area. They certainly took it back and were not so happy at first, but finally, after many statements, they were satisfied with the bilateral waiver agreements that we have with Spain and Germany in my case, and I passed without the Overstayer stamp. Fyi – here is the list of bilateral visa-free agreements in force for Schengen countries, as reported by the European Commission: Note: Bilateral agreements between NCB and EU Member States may vary depending on the new legislation in force. To add a little, I contacted Hungary, as stated here on this site by the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Foreign Affairs: www.mfat.govt.nz/en/countries-and-regions/europe/france/new-zealand-embassy/living-in-france/travel-within-france-and-europe/ We have email confirmations from the embassies of France and Spain in mid-2019, plus the printable letter on the website of the Italian Embassy that bilateral agreements are still accepted and in force. When I left Spain in December 2019, the man behind the counter was looking closely at the dates of entry, asking me if I could speak Spanish (maybe to ask for our 120 days since we arrived in Schengen?), and when I received my «no», he simply stamped the passports with a smile and off. I have been in the Schengen area for about 70 days and will have spent just over two months outside the Schengen area. But I will be in the Schengen area again for about 30 days before leaving Berlin.
So I will have spent more than 90 days in the Schengen area, but with the bilateral visa waiver agreements, I should be fine, since I spent a few weeks in France and Spain and elsewhere. The thing is that I keep a receipt or something almost every day in these countries, except that they are not always hosting receipts, they are just random receipts from supermarkets and other things, although I still have my bus receipts, I think. Do you think that would be enough evidence to show the Germans at the airport, if there is a problem, with the embassy emails? However, I wonder if these rules still apply to nz passport holders, given that covid-19 has been adopted? If so, is it possible to get my first Schengen visa from the UK? Yes, I can confirm that this is the right thing to do.
