Brexit Update: 5th January
We would like to reassure Club Vass clients we do not anticipate disruption to travel due to Brexit other than ensuring you have 6 months on your passport.
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has compiled important information on the implications of the recently signed Brexit agreement for travel:
IATA underlines that the agreement has settled most of the issues and passengers should not notice significant impediment to their travel between the UK and EU after December 31, 2020.
It should be noted that restrictions (such as quarantine measures) concerning Covid-19 are currently in force for travellers from the UK to EU countries. These measures are not related to Brexit but will affect travel in the short term.
The rights of movement are not affected and people will be able to travel between the UK and EU as before Brexit. However, there will be some differences. UK passport holders may need to queue in the non-EU passport lanes, which may mean a longer wait to get through the border (though individual EU states have discretion on this).
Also, a travel visa will not be required unless staying for more than 90 days in any 180 day period in the EU. However, some work occupations may require visas, and professionals will need to check if their qualifications/certifications will still be valid.
