Visa Won’t Be Needed For Brits Abroad After Brexit

Amongst all of the craziness of Brexit or No Brexit, it seems that at least Brits will still be able to travel to Europe visa-free whatever happens.

It’s been confirmed that in the event of a deal or no deal Brexit, UK citizens will be able to travel to Schengen countries for up to 90 days.

That means we can still plan our summer holidays for; Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

The European Council said in a statement, ‘EU ambassadors today agreed that, following Brexit, UK citizens coming to the Schengen area for a short stay (90 days in any 180 days) should be granted visa free travel.

‘Ambassadors mandated the Council Presidency to start negotiations with the European Parliament on this legislative proposal.

‘According to EU rules, visa exemption is granted on condition of reciprocity. The government of the United Kingdom has stated that it does not intend to require a visa from EU citizens travelling to the UK for short stays.’
