EU agrees on visa free travel following Brexit

 

Ambassadors have also 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.


In the event that the United Kingdom introduces a visa requirement for nationals of at least one member state in the future, the existing reciprocity mechanism would apply and the three institutions and the member states would commit to act without delay in applying the mechanism.


Visa policy towards third country citizens travelling to the Schengen area for a short stay is regulated under EU legislation.


Existing rules include all third country nationals under one of two lists: nationals of third countries required to be in possession of a visa and those exempt from this requirement. Following Brexit, as a third country the United Kingdom will need to appear under one of these two lists.
