The Schengen Agreement includes Liechtenstein.
- Between nations that have signed and implemented the pact, there are usually no border restrictions. This covers the majority of the European Union as well as a few additional nations.
- Before boarding foreign planes or vessels, identification checks are typically performed. At land boundaries, there are sometimes temporary border restrictions.
- A visa issued to a Schengen member is also valid in all other Schengen nations that have signed and implemented the treaty.
Liechtenstein is not a European Union member. As a result, visitors entering Liechtenstein from Austria (or vice versa) face non-systematic customs checks. Since Liechtenstein entered the Schengen Area on December 19, 2011, there have been no immigration restrictions.
Switzerland maintains a full customs union with Liechtenstein, which is represented by Switzerland in foreign embassies. Since 1923, there have been no official border crossing requirements between the two nations. In essence, while crossing the Rhine or the land border, there is little more than a sign proclaiming your arrival in Switzerland or Liechtenstein, similar to the situation at minor border crossings in many EU countries (e.g., Austria, Germany, France, Italy). For CHF3 or €2.00, stamp collectors may obtain a genuine Liechtenstein entrance stamp in their passport at Vaduz’s tourism office. The stamp is not available in the Liechtensteinisches Landesmuseum; the only location to get one is at the tourist office.
