Travelling to the EU or live there? Get ready for Brexit

The UK is leaving the EU on 31 October and we are making all necessary preparations to ensure we are ready.

This includes making sure UK travellers to the EU and UK nationals living in the EU are prepared.

If this is you – or you have friends and family involved – then please read on…

UK travellers to the EU

Europe is our most popular travel destination with around 60 million visits to the EU every year.

Once we leave, people need to be ready to travel to the EU after Brexit by doing 4 things:

  • checking passports (if you have less than 6 months left)
  • getting travel insurance – make sure you’re covered
  • checking driving permits (you may need extra documents)
  • making sure your pet can travel (allow 4 months to arrange).

For more information visit our journey planner.

UK nationals living in the EU

There are more than one million UK nationals living in the EU, with more than 60% living in just four countries – Spain, France, Germany and the Netherlands.

The Foreign Office is doing a lot of work already through our Embassies across Europe, to inform people about the changes they need to make ahead of Brexit on 31 October.

Many of the changes are specific to the country you are living in, but generally you will need to take action in 4 areas:

  • residency
  • healthcare
  • passports
  • driving permits

Please visit our ‘Living In Guides’ on GOV.UK which have specific information for each country.

Keep up to date

Over the coming weeks we are stepping up advice to get people prepared for Brexit.
