Brits to pay €7 to visit EU post-Brexit
The European Commission has confirmed that Brits will be able to travel to EU countries without a visa once the Brexit transition period ends.
Instead, they will need to apply for a European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS). The document will cost €7 and is expected to come into force at the end of 2020.
It allows an individual who is travelling to the EU’s border-free Schengen zone multiple trips within a three-year period. All citizens from non-EU countries who have been granted visa-free travel within the EU will have to apply for an ETIAS for business or travel purposes.
Natash Bertaud, a spokesperson from the European Commission, announced the ETIAS would apply to UK citizens post-Brexit in a tweet. She added that it will involve filling out a form that is similar to the ESTA form which grants entry into the US, but said it would be much cheaper.
