it depends on which countries you are visiting. Europe is defined for visas by the “Schengen Agreement” and includes the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. If you are going to just these countries, you can stay a maximum of 90 days total. If you want to stay longer, you have to apply to a country for a longer term visa.
Yes, you only need your passport. I copied the following from the Canadian government site:
The following 26 countries comprise the Schengen Area: Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.
The Schengen area has common rules regarding visas and controls at external borders:
You do not need visas for short-term visits of up to 90 days within a six-month period. Your stays are cumulative, and include visits to any country within the Schengen area. Some countries require that you register with local authorities within three working days of your arrival.
It is important to get your passport stamped when entering the Schengen area. The absence of an entry stamp from the initial Schengen port of entry could create difficulties during subsequent encounters with local police or other authorities throughout the Schengen area.
After 90 days of stay in the Schengen area, you must leave for another 90 days before you can re-enter.
If you overstay the permitted 90 days in the Schengen area, you may be fined or deported. To visit for longer than 90 days, you must obtain a long-stay national visa."
Here is an Oktoberfest tour: http://scripts.affiliatefuture.com/AFClick.asp?af...
With the Schengen agreement, visitors from Australia get up to 90 days total in a 6 month period, whether it is 90 consecutive days or 30 here, 10, there and 50 at the end over this 6 month period. You cannot leave the Schengen area and return to get another 90 days. The US State Dept website says you must leave for 90 days completely from the Schengen area and then you can return for another 90 days. Hope this helps.
You won't have a problem. You will have 90 days to visit any of the countries included in the Schengen Agreement which includes France and you will have up to 6 months to stay in England without a visa.
