According to travel experts, EU borders will be chaotic for Brits looking for a summer getaway.

SUNSEEKERS planning a trip to Europe next summer should expect “continuous delays and disruption” as a result of EU travel procedures, according to peers.

The justice and home affairs committee of the House of Lords warned Priti Patel that European border procedures could have “severe ramifications for British rights and liberties.” Most travelers will be required to seek travel authorization before entering the EU, while the EntryExit System (EES) will require them to submit their facial picture and fingerprints with European authorities – and to have them checked every time they move to or from the bloc.

At a committee hearing, executives from the Port of Dover, Eurotunnel, and Eurostar expressed their concerns about the two systems.

“There are major logistical issues that can only be handled by targeted government measures,” Peers warned the Home Secretary.

EES inspections, they concluded, “are likely to cause long-term delays and disturbance, both for travelers and for communities in Kent.”
