Initially, only a visa waiver agreement for a duration of stay up till 2 months, later on extended for all
countries except Philippines for a 3 month duration of stay (Belgium: 1995, Luxembourg: 1975,
Greece: 1978, Portugal: 1981)
** This visa waiver agreement allows for stays up until 6 months for holder of normal passports.
*** The visa waiver agreement with the Socialistic Federative Republic of Yugoslavia was
suspended with Serbia and Montenegro in 1992 but firstly continued with Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia
Herzegovina and Macedonia. In 1993 and 1995 respectively, the Austrian government concluded
individual agreements with Slovenia and Croatia while it pragmatically continued the 1965
agreement with Bosnia-Herzegovina and Macedonia. However, it stopped this pragmatic approach in
1995 and refrained from concluding new individual agreements with both countries.
**** The visa waiver agreement with Czechoslovakia was never suspended, not even after the
dissolution of the country into the Czech Republic and Slovak Republic. Rather, in 1998 (Slovak
Republic) and 1999 (Czech Republic) respectively, the original agreement with Czechoslovakia was
adjusted to the new circumstances.
Countries in italics signed provisional agreements with the EU waiving the visa requirement on 6
April 2009 that have been in force since 28 May 2009, pending completion of the procedures for their
formal conclusion (see EU 539/2001 with modifications of 2007 and see EU documents 7514/09;
7522/09; 7518/09; 7520/09; 7528/09; 7526/0 ).
Since 19 December 2009, citizens of countries in superscript if in possession of a biometrical
passport have been allowed to enter Schengen countries without a visa.

We could not find out whether Brunei, the German Democratic Republic or the Socialist Federal
Republic of Yugoslavia, Venezuela, Hong Kong and Macau had bilateral visa waiver agreements
with Finland.
* We do not have any information as to what happened to the visa waiver agreement with
Czechoslovakia after the country’s dissolution. We assume that it was continued pragmatically
because of both countries' accession to the European Union was predictable.
Countries in italics signed provisional agreements with the EU waiving the visa requirement on 6
April 2009 that have been in force since 28 May 2009, pending completion of the procedures for their
formal conclusion (see EU 539/2001 with modifications of 2007 and see EU documents 7514/09;
7522/09; 7518/09; 7520/09; 7528/09; 7526/0 ).
Since 19 December 2009, citizens of countries in superscript if in possession of a biometrical
passport have been allowed to enter Schengen countries without a visa.
