Travelling within EU with Ausweis and Australian passport (not linked to Ausweis)

Hello,

I have dual nationality - Australian and British. My British passport is currently being renewed and I believe it is linked in some way with my Ausländerausweis as it says in there that my nationality is British.

I want to travel to France in the next couple of weeks and may not have my British passport back. So my question is: is it a problem to travel on my Australian passport? I rarely get asked for my Ausweis at border control at the airport, though last time I travelled to the US I had to leave on my British one AND show the Ausweis. Maybe travelling in Europe is different.

Ange

You can travel anywhere in the Schengen part of the EU with your Swiss residence permit 'B' 'C' or 'L' etc. It is always a good idea to carry a passport as well.

So your passport is not linked in any way to the Ausweis?

The only importance is that you are allowed to live in Europe, and the photo looks like you.

I had New Zealand visitors. I went to the French Embassy to get them a Schengen Visa for travel to Paris, the Embassy told me NZ do not need one.

For peace of mind, ask the French Embassy if your Australian passport is valid without a visa.

Maybe not live as in reside for long-term, but to visit since the Schengen Zone allows for social visits.
