WITHDRAWAL OF THE UK FROM THE EUROPEAN UNION (BREXIT)

06 January 2021 13:27:42 CET

On 31 January 2020 the United Kingdom withdrew from the European Union (EU) and ceased to be a member of the European Economic Area (EEA).

A transition period of 11 months was agreed until 31 December 2020. Consequently, most entry and transit regulations changes became effective on 1 January 2021.

Remaining regulation changes will enter into effect on later dates. E.g., identity cards issued by Switzerland and EEA Member States remain valid for travel to the United Kingdom until 1 October 2021.
