Britons will pay €7 (£6.30) every three years to travel to EU countries following Brexit.
The European Commission said that UK travellers don’t need a VISA but they will need to apply for and buy another document, to enter into EU states.
The document is called an ETIAS (European Travel Information and Authorization System) and is expected to come into force in 2021.
The travel requirement is not just specific to the UK but for many other non-EU countries. As the UK will be outside of the EU bloc then then we will face this fee.
Natasha Bertaud, co-ordinating spokesperson for Jean-Claude Juncker, confirmed that ETIAS would apply to British tourists after Brexit, but that it was “way cheaper” than an ESTA.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
