At the time of writing Australian, US and New Zealand citizens do not require a visa to visit a Nordic country. Visa and other entry and exit conditions (such as currency, customs and quarantine regulations) can change at short notice so please double check the specifics before travelling.
In the near future, (currently planned for 2025) citizens from US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand need to apply for ETIAS Visa Waiver. The ETIAS (European Travel Information and Authorization System) visa waiver program will be needed to enter a Schengen member country. All visitors that currently do not need a visa to enter Europe will be expected to apply for an ETIAS travel authorization. The ETIAS visa waiver has been designed for short-term stays of up to 90 days.
