BRITS will still be able to visit the EU without a visa even under a No Deal Brexit, European leaders said today.
Ambassadors from the EU have signed off on plans to grant British citizens the right to travel to the continent.
Brits won’t need visas to visit Europe after Brexit
The move means that Brits will be able to go on holiday and visit European relatives without any trouble.
The proposed rules state that UK citizens can go to Europe for up to 90 days in any six-month period.
But if they want to stay longer, or to work for pay, they will have to apply for a visa.
The British Government has offered the same arrangement to Europeans in the event of a No Deal outcome.
The proposal was originally put forward by the European Commission in November.
Today diplomats from the 27 remaining member states rubber-stamped the new rules.
They said in a statement: “EU ambassadors today agreed that, following Brexit, UK citizens coming to the Schengen area for a short stay (90 days in any 180 days) should be granted visa free travel.”
Now the plan must be approved by the European Parliament before it passes into law.
The EU warned that if Britain breaks the promise of visa-free travel for Europeans, they will impose visas on UK citizens in return.
If there is a Brexit deal, it will include a 21-month transition period during which the current rules will continue to apply.
Brits will be granted visa-free travel even if there’s No Deal
