For the time being, travel between the EU and UK continues as before. This means that if you have any travel plans to the EU during the rest of 2020 you can expect the pre-Brexit withdrawal travel regulations will still apply.

However, new rules are likely to apply for travel to Europe from 1 January 2021. This is conditional on the transition period ending on 31 December 2020. 

This means that from 1 January 2021, if you hold a British passport you will need to ensure that your passport is valid for at least six months on the day you travel and be less than 10 years old (even if validity is more than 6 months). These rules apply when travelling to all members states of the EU (not including Ireland) as well as to other European countries including Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein.

If you renewed your current passport before the previous one expired, extra months may have been added to its expiry date. Any extra months on your passport over 10 years may not count towards the 6 months needed.

If you are booking a holiday in Europe after 1 January 2021, you will need to keep abreast of any changes agreed. We will of course keep you posted.
