    Default Post Brexit Travel to Europe

    I hope this happens in time for Brexit.

    Once the UK leaves the EU, British citizens will become “third country nationals” with no automatic right of admission. A European initiative is being developed to strengthen the EU’s external borders: the European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS). Citizens of non-EU countries who do not currently need visas will need to register their details and their intentions online.

    Every prospective visitor to the EU, plus Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Liechtenstein, will register their details and pay a €5 (£4.50) fee, though under-12s can be registered free. The information will be compared against a number of watchlists, and a decision made on whether or not to grant an ETIAS.

    Personal information including name, address, contact details, passport details and occupation (with your job title and employer, or for students, the name of educational establishment). There will also be questions about your state of health, particularly any infectious diseases. You must give details of any convictions in the past 20 years for serious crimes, including those involving terrorism, armed robbery, child pornography, fraud and money laundering, cybercrime, illicit trafficking in endangered animal species, counterfeiting, industrial espionage, arson, racism and xenophobia.

    Wow imagine having to fill in an online form and pay €5. I expect no one would ever get on a plane or ferry again with such a monumental barrier like that in place.

    Why will it make any difference? Brexit voting Brits will still go to Europe on holiday. An extra £5 isn't going to make a major difference, but when the tour ops change that to £15, the punters will blame the EU.

    How about some facts from you regarding this 50% figure please?
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Only a sad bitter petulant loser would "hope" for that. Oh wait............I see what you did there!

    It's true - in the summer, the British tourist industry spends £350million a week in the EU. I read it on the side of a bus somewhere.

    You are weird.

    He was just reporting a news story.

    There are already long delays for non- Schengen area citizens at EU airports and this should get rid of them.

    Paddy, I agree with your word "hope" as it means it's something which can be negotiated as part of the Brexit process, rather than another negotiation to take place at a later (or possibly earlier) stage. It's a shame that the UK's negotiators are of a similar skill level to some of the posters on here, who turn angry when they read things they don't understand, or just respond with smilies.

    Michel Barnier: I think we should talk about trade
    David Davis: Michelle is a girls name :lol
    MB: OK, then how about the Open Skies agreement
    DD: Well, you need to pay us for that because all your flights fly over the UK to get to the US.
    MB: Firstly, no they don't, and secondly it's an agreement about flying in the US as well, but hey ho, if you don't want to talk about it, maybe we can go on to something else...
