As I understand it. Under the brexit deals that were negotiated by the government but not passed by Parliament there is supposed to be a transition period lasting at least until the end of 2020. Freedom of movement would continue during this transition period. So you would be ok to travel in February on your existing passport. On the other hand, in the ...

According to the UK Border Force: You no longer have to fill in a landing card. Your passport (and visa if you have one) will be checked at border control. You’ll usually be asked why you’re coming to the UK. Therefore the question is pretty much moot, as no one will have to fill out landing cards anymore as of 2019, regardless of what happens during the ...

Indeed, this is one of the many questions that is still unclear. The liklihood is high, that while valid, this card will remain proof that your wife is family member of a EU citizen. Based on the German Embassy text below (which may be country specific) a Schengen Visa must be applied for after Brexit and will be issued based on EU rules for a family ...

Nothing will change during the transition period; as such you'll be able to enter the Schengen Area indefinitely, without your passport being stamped and using the EEA lanes. The nature of the transition period is negotiating future rules; the rules, therefore, remain unchanged in the meantime. Source: https://www.gov.uk/visit-europe-1-january-2021

Now that we are in the brexit transition period, is it the case she can still apply in this capacity? Yes. The withdrawal agreement specifies that EU law still applies in the UK and to the UK until the end of the transition period. This means that citizens of the UK are still treated as EU citizens for the purpose of EU law, including the free movement ...

All publicly made statements, from both sides, have made it clear that no change for short stays, in the form of visas, is considered desirable. The Citizens’ Rights and transition portions of the Withdrawal Agreement reflect only the area of long term stays and not short term stays. The Political declaration setting out the framework for the future ...

This is a badly formed question because your passport expiry is the same as the Brexit crash-out date! So you are only asking about 2 use cases: a) Britain still in EU, or b) passport is expired. Black-boxing Traveler's link: After a crash-out Brexit, you cannot travel on an expired passport end of inquiry. Anti-DV Disclaimer: I'm referring to a UK ...

Probably you do not need a sticker. UK is a signatory of Vienna convention on Road traffic (list of signatory). The last annotation from UK were done this year (2019, mostly about status in Gibraltar, the Bailiwick of Guernsey and the Bailiwick of Jersey), so it seems that UK accept it. The annex 3 defines the country identification, either with the sticker ...

Ireland (commonly known as The Republic of Ireland, though the official name of the state is simply Ireland) is an independent country and an EU state. This status will not change.

Not decided yet, but likely you'll need a passport, as Home Secretary Priti Patel has vaguely claimed to be against accepting EU ID cards (though Gibraltar ID cards and Irish passport cards should remain OK). Again, though, not decided yet.

When it comes to passport control, during the transition period, UK nationals will still be allowed to queue in the areas reserved for EU arrivals only. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-51194363 Nothing changes until December 31st 2020.

If you have a EU passport you are anyway still allowed to freely enter the UK. If you are transiting through London on a true connection (ie. both flights on one ticket) at the same airport you do not need to enter the UK. You will make an airside transit in stead.

As far as I understand, UK’s data retention policies are compatible with both UK and EU law. The Home Office’s policies and regulations regarding data retention have been devised keeping in mind the EU’s strict privacy laws. An example of that is PNR. Whilst PNR may be retained for up to five years it has to be depersonalized after 6 months. Being an EU ...

In the event of a no-deal Brexit, free movement rules will remain in place until December 31, 2020, at least (possibly longer if the UK leaves the EU under the terms of a withdrawal agreement). They may be modified somewhat, however. I have not been able to find any draft legislation to change them, but the government has been making some fairly vague ...
