END OF THE BREXIT TRANSITION
The UK and EU have reached an agreement on the terms of their future relationship following the Dec. 31 end of the Brexit transition period. Several changes to border procedures will enter into effect on Jan. 1; extra time could be required to negotiate entry and exit procedures, particularly for freight entering the EU. Specific changes include:– Passports of UK nationals traveling to the EU must be less than 10 years old and remain valid for at least six months from the date of entry.
– UK citizen require visas for stays in the EU longer than 90 days in any 180-day period; the same requirement applies reciprocally for EU citizens visiting the UK.
– UK businesses trading with the EU must submit customs declarations and other paperwork, and undergo additional checks.
– EU citizens and their families – other than Irish nationals, or individuals with indefinite permission to remain – must apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK after June 30, 2021. Each successful applicant will receive either settled or pre-settled status.
– UK citizens living in the EU may have to apply for residency permits, depending on their country of residence.
In addition, EEA-associated states, including EU members, as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland, may no longer consider the UK exempt from current entry bans relating to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic; Northern Ireland residents traveling to Ireland will likely be unaffected.
