EU to grant UK citizens visa free travel after Brexit

April 3, 2019

 

BRUSSELS, April 3 (Xinhua) -- The European Council and the Parliament announced on Wednesday that, after Brexit, UK citizens coming to the Schengen area for a short stay (90 days in any 180 days) should be granted visa free travel.

 

The agreement, which was already confirmed by EU ambassadors on behalf of the Council on Tuesday, was approved by the European Parliament Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs committee on Wednesday.

 

The text now needs to be formally adopted by the European Parliament and the Council.

 

According to EU rules, visa exemption is granted on condition of reciprocity. And the British government has stated that it does not intend to require a visa from EU citizens travelling to the UK for short stays.

 

The European Commission would monitor the respect of the principle of reciprocity on a continuous basis and immediately inform the European Parliament and the Council of any developments which could endanger the respect of this principle.
