UK nationals are able to travel visa-free for short stays for up to 90 days in a rolling 180-day period, for a limited number of business-related activities, as well as for tourism. UK nationals who plan to stay longer than 90 in 180 days or are carrying out activities that are not exempt from a Member State’s visa or work permit requirements, may need a visa, work permit or other documentation. Visa and work permit arrangements are set by individual EU Member States.

The Government will continue to engage with the EU, in line with the structures established by the UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA), which allow for both Parties to raise issues of concern about compliance with that agreement.
