RoadEast has indicated that this thread is about Schengen Visa


I have searched and searched, but have found nothing. Hope you can help!

I am an Australian citizen, heading to Europe for a holiday. I will arrive into the Schengen area at Hook-of-Holland, Netherlands. I plan to get a short-stay Schengen visa-on-arrival (or visa-free, whatever is it called).

From Netherlands I will be travelling overland to Greece. Inbetween there's the former Yugoslav countries, which of course issue their own visas. My question is will I be able to enter Greece with a visa-on-arrival at a land border with a non-Schengen country?

Just to clarify, I will be spending less than 90 days in total in all of Europe, so the short-stay Schengen visa is fine, but will I be able to get into Greece?

Thank you!

Yeah you will be fine. I have gone between Balkan countries and Euro countries quite a bit with no problems.

yep, no problems. Just a look and a stamp in your passport.

For Aussies the Schengen Area is visa-free if you come as a tourist and stay less than 90 days, regardless where and how you arrive.
