How to Spend Longer Than 3 Months in Europe – VISAS

*This post is only good for NZ citizens/those who can acquire a kiwi passport! Sorry Aussies!* 

If you are planning a Europe trip/any trip I hope you are aware/have researched the visa requirements for where you are going! It’s the departing countries responsibility to ensure you have the right visa for where you are going, so if you haven’t done your homework you may not be able to depart the country… Also your passport needs to have more than 6months left on it, including the time spent overseas (eg. If you have 9months left you can only be away for a maximum of 3 months). Basically it expires 6months before the expiry date as no one will let you go anywhere with less than that, so be sure to double-check that. (Pics from google images!) Continue Reading

Portugal

Oh Portugal, you gorgeous thang! 6 and a half weeks wizzed by way too fast. We got a bla bla car  that picked us up in France and dropped us off in Lisbon to pick up our campervan at the start of August! **Sorry for the late post! It’s been ready to go for 2 weeks but we haven’t had decent wifi to upload all the pics, it should’ve been ready yesterday and then I went and smashed my head and spent the afternoon at the hospital. Yay. I’m all good, terrifying ordeal, couple of stitches, few nasty bruises but it could’ve been much worse!** Continue Reading
