Following ratification of the Withdrawal Agreement, the UK departed the EU on 31 January 2020. We are now in a transition period lasting until at least 31 December 2020. During this time, everything will remain the same and British passport holders can continue to travel without any changes.
You don’t need a visa, pets will travel freely, your EHIC card still applies abroad and no additional insurance will be needed.
Passport and visa
If you are planning to travel to the EU in 2020, expect everything to stay the same as when the UK was still an EU member.
Do British travellers need a visa to travel to France?
100% no. UK citizens will not require a visa to visit France after Brexit. British travellers will continue to travel as normal to the EU post January 31, 2020 and until the end of December 2020.
Are British travellers’ passports still valid?
Yes valid passports can still be used. Of course, passports still need to be valid for the whole of the trip.
Are UK driving licences still valid in the EU?
As long as drivers have a full UK driving licence, they don’t need any additional licence or permit to drive in the EU. An International Driving Permit is not required, and passengers won’t need a GB sticker or a so-called “Green Card” for car insurance.
