Advice for visitors on Brexit and travel

More than 30 million people travel to Britain every year to take advantage of our world-class travel, education and business opportunities. 

Britain continues to provide a world-class visitor experience and welcome for the millions of visitors who travel here each year.

The UK Government has confirmed flights will continue to run smoothly whatever the circumstances. This ensures UK airlines can continue to operate to Europe, providing holidaymakers with the certainty they need and ensure flights will continue after Brexit.

Travel for EU visitors

EU citizens can continue to travel on ID cards until at least 2021, if we leave with a deal. It is recommended that visitors who are citizens of current EU Member States and who have a valid passport use the e-gates to make entry quick and easy. Visitors who are citizens of current EU member states will continue to be able to travel without a visa. This will continue to be the case even if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.

Global visitors

Citizens of the US, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Singapore and South Korea are permitted to use e-gates at UK airports and at Eurostar terminals. This is reducing queues and improving the flow of passengers and the overall experience at the UK border.

What you need to show at the Border 

What you need to show at the border will not change, even if the UK leaves the EU without a deal. EEA and Swiss citizens can continue to travel using their Passport or National ID card, until 2021; and can use eGates if they have biometric passports.
