After Brexit - How Will My Travel from the UK to Greece be Affected?
If the United Kingdom leaves the European Union (EU) with no deal on 31st October 2019, the rules for travel to countries still in the European Union will be changing.
The major change is that travellers will need at least 6 months left on their UK passport from their date of arrival at their destination (Rhodes), however this only affects travel to certain countries.
Fortunately, as there is a considerable amount of confusion surrounding this, the gov.uk website contains a simple passport checker.
Will I Need a Visa for Travel to Rhodes after Brexit ?
The European Commission has confirmed that visitors won’t need to apply for a visa if they are travelling this year (2019). However, from 2021 they may be required to pay a fee of €7 to enter the European Union.
The reason for this is that a transition period will take place once a Brexit deal is agreed, and this could take as much as 2 years.
Driving in the EU after Brexit
From 31st October 2019, in the event that there is no EU Exit deal, drivers may need an IDP (International Driving Permit) in addition to their UK driving licence to drive in EU and EEA countries.
If you hold an EU driving licence, you do not need an International Driving Permit. If stopped by the police you may be asked to produce your passport.
Further information for UK citizens travelling abroad can be found on the UK Government website.
