The only bilateral agreement between the UK and the EU would be the withdrawal agreement reached by Boris Johnson in October 2019. In the end, the UK`s trade conditions in the absence of an agreement would be similar to Australia`s, but the broader relationship would not be. In this sense, changes to bilateral visa waiver agreements can only be made by both parties. In other words, the current bilateral agreements between an EU Member State and a third country, which provide more favourable entry conditions for both countries, are subject to changes, observations and/or improvements, provided that the two sides are coordinated in their decision. France is a delicate case. 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 not signed until after the creation of the Schengen area and it refers to this agreement. I also intend to travel to the Netherlands, with which Australia also has a bilateral visa-free agreement. Say I spent 7 days in Amsterdam, but I entered the Netherlands on the bilateral visa waiver agreement, does that mean that these 7 days do not count for my 90 days countdown to Schengen? However, an official from another country would consider entry to the Netherlands as the beginning of my 90 days? But the ideal would also be for it to start my countdown without counting the 7 days, because it means that I will reach my 180 days faster so that I can then reset and return to the Schengen area? Secondly, given that I will be on the road for about 229 days, I wanted to ask whether the time spent in a country with a bilateral waiver agreement was counted for the Schengen countdown. It seems that these waiver agreements are usually used for the end of your stay if you have exhausted your 90 days. That`s partly true for me. I would most likely go to the Nordic countries after my 90 days in the Schengen area are all exhausted. However, as I will travel for more than 180 days, I hoped to be able to return to the Schengen area after 180 days (without the days spent in the Nordic countries on the bilateral visa waiver agreement).
Does anyone know if it is possible? If I spend 20 days in the Nordic countries for a bilateral visa agreement, would that add an additional 20 days before I can enter the Schengen area? First, you must apply for a visa when using any of these waivers? Or does it only bring documents from the consulates/embassies of the countries concerned that show that you can enter the country through a bilateral visa agreement? At the end of the ETIAS validity period, third-country nationals may continue to apply for an extended stay in a country with a bilateral visa waiver agreement. As the ETIAS expires after 90 days, foreigners must remain in the country beyond that border.

While these visa waiver agreements expand borders for anyone considering a long-term stay in Europe, it is not easy to use them to your advantage. Here are some of the reciprocal agreements currently in force between EU and non-European countries, as follows. In accordance with Article 60 of the Regulation (EU) 2017/2226, visa-free third-country nationals may stay in the Schengen area for more than 90 days over a period of 180 days, in exceptional cases or under a bilateral treaty. As an Australian, I intend to travel to Europe next year (June 2019 – mid-January 2020) for almost 8 months, and I am trying to go around these bilateral agreements and how to use them to stay more than 90 days in the Schengen area.
