Here you go:
http://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schengen-samarbejdet

The Portuguese wikipedia also says that Liechtenstein has signed but not implemented the agreement.

Switzerland has for some time been a quasi Schengen, or associated Schengen member, meaning that they will honour the Schengen scheme and its rules even they were not part of it. That is, a person with a valid Schengen visa can enter Switzerland while that visa is valid, while those that dont need a visa wont need one for Switzerland either.

The Wikipedia link above above looks unreliable and not referenced.

The English one at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schengen_Area is somewhat better, but still a bit incaccurate as it mentioned border controls were lifted in March 09, but I still went through border controls in June 09. Theres also a rediculous and stupid arrangement with Basel airport being split.

The article mentions Switzerland implementing Schengen rules fully but not that is actually a member of Shengen or the EU.

Here are some more reliable references:
http://www.ch.ch/schweiz/00157/00173/index.html?lang=en
http://www.ezv.admin.ch/ezv/00434/01...x.html?lang=en

The article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schenge...#Liechtenstein provides a reasonable overview of the Liechtenstein situation:
Quote:
Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein signed a Schengen-related association with the European Union on 28 February 2008,[80][81] and originally planned to join the Schengen Area on 1 November 2009. This has been put on hold, awaiting the consent of the Swedish government.[82] Until it joins, Liechtenstein's borders with Austria and Switzerland are considered Schengen-external borders. Unlike Switzerland, Liechtenstein belongs to the European Economic Area.

The country has had an open border with Switzerland since 1923, but when Switzerland joined the Schengen Area on 12 December 2008, the Liechtenstein–Switzerland border became a Schengen-external border, requiring border checks.

For Switzerland, its open border with Liechtenstein was an important issue as some EU states wanted to use the Schengen enlargement to pressure Liechtenstein regarding fraud issues.[83] Swiss customs and border guards have already been manning Liechtenstein's border crossing with Austria at Schaanwald-Tisis, effectively treating Liechtenstein as internal to Switzerland.[84]

Until Liechtenstein joins the Area, an interim arrangement applies to the Liechtenstein–Switzerland border.[85] Instead of on-site immigration and customs checkpoints, all roads into Switzerland from the principality are subject to video surveillance, enabling the border to remain open. The Austria–Liechtenstein border crossing at Schaanwald-Tisis is still manned by Swiss customs and border guards and its operating hours have been expanded to around-the-clock.

Liechtenstein does not have any airports and its government has issued a prohibition of takeoffs and landings at the Balzers Heliport with respect to non-Schengen countries to ensure that Liechtenstein has no Schengen external border and therefore does not represent an immigration risk for the Schengen area, even with open borders with Switzerland.

It was definitely possible in August 2008, on the Austrian border (Feldkirch / Schaanwald). I also got an Austrian one. But now with Schengen I don't know if it's possible any more..!

According to this: http://wikitravel.org/en/Liechtenstein you can for 3.00 euros.

I am not sure about Liechtenstein, but I've done this in San Mario (the price is 5.00 €)...

The stamp you can get at the tourist office is something like this.
But the one you can (could?) get at Schaanwald/Tisis border crossing looks more like this one (right page, the blue one at the bottom). The latter is free and, in my opinion, more authentic.

Btw, a Czech vignette on the passport!?

For the vignette - post this in "wired and crazy staff"...

This is getting off-topic, but since Liechtenstein is not in the EU, in case the border crossing is still working, I think you can easily get a stamp. It's also possible to get one by EU countries, if the officer is in a good mood. You won't lose anything by asking!

That's not true. Registration plates in Guernsey are white on black.
