British citizens will be charged a new fee to enter the EU as a result of Brexit – the rule is expected to be implemented this year.
BRITS LOVE HOLIDAYING IN THE EU, which includes Spain, Portugal, Greece, and France.
The rules for British tourists have changed as a result of Brexit.
Britons will have to pay to enter the EU beginning this year.
Britons will be charged £5.88 (€7) to holiday in the European Union, according to the European Commission.
The freedom of movement rule expires this year, which means Britons are no longer covered by the agreement.
The United Kingdom will be treated the same as any other non-EU country, resulting in visa fees for anyone wishing to enter the EU.
Britons will also have to pre-register their information on top of the £5.88 (€7) fee.
The European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS) is a visa-free travel document that will be valid for three years or until the expiration of British passports.
The new rule is set to take effect later this year, and it will force Britons to become more organized.
Although the ETIAS website for Britons has yet to be launched, the new rule is expected to go into effect by the end of 2022.
Only those under the age of 18 and those over the age of 70 will be exempt.
Currently, the system, which eliminates the need for a visa, is used by 61 non-EU countries.
The EU levy allows visitors to stay and travel in member states for up to 90 days.
Residents of the United Kingdom will be limited to 90 days in any 180-day period in order to visit the EU.
Meanwhile, citizens of the EU, EEA, and Switzerland can visit the UK without paying a fee or requiring a visa.
They are allowed to stay for up to six months as “standard visitors.”
There are no restrictions on the amount of time a person can spend in the UK in a given period.
This means that visitors can stay in the UK for another six months if they leave after six months.
The government is aware of the flaw and has stated that visitors may be turned away.
They stated that if it is “clear from their travel history that they are seeking to remain in the UK for extended periods of time or making the UK their home through repeated visits,” they will be denied entry.
“Individuals who do not have the necessary immigration permission for the activities they intend to undertake in the UK, or who Border Force staff do not believe they do,” the government said.
