Travelling to the EU

From Friday 1 January, there will be new rules on travelling to the EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. 

You may need to:

  • check your passport
  • get travel insurance that covers your healthcare
  • ensure you have the right travel documents
  • if you're taking your pet, you will need to contact your vet at least 4 months before travelling to get the latest advice

Check requirements if you are travelling to the EU for business


Staying in the UK if you're an EU citizen

If you are an EU citizen, you should check if you need to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS). This applies if you or your family are from the EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein. 

You should apply for the EUSS by Wednesday 30 June 2021 if you want to continue to live and work in the UK.

Continue living and working in the EU

Living and working in an EU country depends on the rules in that country. You may need to register or apply for residency. You should also check that you're covered for healthcare.

Additionally, you may need to exchange your UK driving licence for a licence issued by the EU country where you live.
