How Brexit can affect the European visa

Brexit is the name given to the exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union after the referendum that was held on June 23, 2016. This measure affects all countries of the European Union and may pose a difficulty for different sectors and even for travelers. How can Brexit affect the European Visa? That is one of the questions that we are going to try to answer in this article.

Aspects to consider after the Brexit

For the time being, the conditions of entry and greeting for the United Kingdom after the completion of the Brexit process are not defined. One of the most affected sectors will be the tourism sector and for that reason, it is recommended to keep in mind that a visa could be implemented to restrict the free movement of citizens in its territory, although everything is still to be defined.

It is not known which countries will be required to obtain a visa in order to travel through the United Kingdom. Nor what will be the rates for this procedure, but what is known is that so far, citizens of the European Union as well as Monaco, Switzerland, Norway, Liechtenstein, Iceland and Andorra do not need any kind of visa to access the UK.

Those travelers who do not belong to any of these countries, to access the United Kingdom will need to have a passport that has a minimum validity of six months from the date of entry into the country.

It must be said that all these rules are merely temporary given that, as of the entry into force of the separation agreement of the United Kingdom from the European Union, they will change and we will have to be alert to all the changes that will take place.

In order not to take us any last-minute surprises, we must try to keep informed about the changes that are going to take place and also the dates that are foreseen so that the changes that have been proposed when the Brexit occurs are fulfilled.
