UK is leaving the EU: consequences for travelers

Written by Anyvisa Services on . Posted in Travel Blog.

Europe has been one of the most attractive travel destinations for many centuries. The Schengen Area is an area that is made up of 26 countries. As you know, the special thing about the Schengen Area is that you don’t need a visa to travel within the territory.

After Brexit, which is the prospective withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union, the traveling to Europe will get some changes. The UK is not a part of the Schengen visa scheme, and in the future, it may not even be necessary for foreigners from outside Europe to have a visa to the UK at all.

The ones who will suffer once Brexit is finalized are the British citizens. Now they are able to travel everywhere in the EU by just presenting their passports. However, from 2019, they may need a visa to travel to Europe.
