London : UK citizens travelling to the EU will face extra border checks. Guards may ask travellers for information including the duration and purpose of their trip, as well as an explanation of how they intend to support themselves while in the bloc.
To cross the border UK citizens will need a passport issued within 10 years preceding the date of travel which also remains valid for three months after the planned trip is over.
The Commission has proposed that UK nationals will be able to travel visa-free for trips to the EU of up to 90 days in a 180-day period, provided the UK allows EU citizens to do the same.
The UK has announced that EU citizens can travel to the UK without a visa for visits of up to three months.
Will luggage be subject to additional customs checks?
The EU will impose customs checks on those entering the bloc from the UK and travellers will not be allowed to carry some goods across the border.
Meat, cheese, milk, plants, plant products and some animals will not be allowed into the EU from the UK, as well as cash exceeding 10,000 euro.
The UK may apply similar customs checks on EU citizens.
Those travelling from the UK to the EU will be entitled to duty free allowances.
