Could someone please tell me about borders in Europe and passports and how all of this works? I have a Canadian passport, and I’m not going anywhere that requires me to have a visa. I’m going to France, Spain, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, and Czech Republic.
I read somewhere that even though you don’t stop at borders now between Schengen countries, it is still advised that you get your passport stamped, just in case something happens and the authorities need to know when you entered the country. Or something like that.
Is this true? And do you have to then go out of your way to seek out a border control agent?
