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. In addition, the Australian and Dutch governments have reached an agreement stipulating that Australian passport holders can remain in the Netherlands for an additional 90 days without a visa, after visiting other Schengen states. However, these additional 90 days are only valid/applicable if the Netherlands is the last Schengen state visited.
