Post-Brexit Visa Situation Confirmed

04 Apr

Recent reports have confirmed that the European Parliament has approved legal changes to ensure that citizens of the United Kingdom will not need a visa to travel to the EU for short stays after Brexit – even in the event of a no-deal exit.

 

The European Commission announced in November it’s intention that, if the UK leaves the EU without a deal, UK citizens will still be able to travel to the EU for up to 90 days in a 180-day period without needing a visa. Today’s vote of the full European Parliament, in Brussels, is the last stage in approving the necessary legislation.

It follows on from the confirmation a few weeks ago that flights will continue to operate, even in a no deal. This means that two of the most important concerns for UK tourists and business travellers visiting the EU have been addressed and will provide a further boost to confidence about travel to the EU after Brexit.
