In this current climate of change, it is understandable that people are concerned about the implications of leaving the EU.
There is a degree of uncertainty globally about what will happen after Brexit and how visas will be affected. The truth is that right now, nobody can be sure what will happen however there are suggestions as to what may happen.
It is likely and may be the case that post Brexit UK citizens will require a visa to enter European countries. It is unknown how this may look and what the financial implications are likely to be.
Many families are finding it harder to afford holidays in the sun during this recent period of austerity and potentially the rising costs of travel post Brexit. If visas are then introduced for travel to the EU the cost may make it harder for families to have annual holidays.
There has also been some concern that the current UK passport which is an EU passport may no longer be valid for travel once the UK have left the EU. However, it has been assured that UK passports in their current form will be valid until the passport expires.
As no deal has been solidified as yet, the uncertainty of life post Brexit remains the same with well-educated guesses being made on what will happen next.
The UK government have said that there is likely to be changes for those wishing to come to the UK on a visa. However, it has been stated that any changes and new travel laws will not be introduced until late 2019 at the earliest.
All anyone can do right now is keep up to date with any announcements regarding Brexit and seek advice before applying for any visas or travelling to the EU/UK over the next 18 months.
