Any replacement for free movement, even if visa-free, will require a registration fee that will add to the expenses of family holidays. Lets look at this hot holiday industry topic and how it may effect you and the family in 2021 and beyond...

If you read the 104 pages of the White Paper to check what would happen once we eventually meet Brexit in 2021, after the transitional period ends on 31 December 2020 you may find some disturbing things... Research has found that our holidays to the French holiday hot spots, the Spanish resorts and villas, the Italian music festivals and family getaways with the grandchildren won’t be quite so simple in the summer of ‘21.

Why? Because of the end of free movement and its vague replacement, “the mobility framework”.

We must note that immigration rules between the UK and EU are set to be matched. Therefore, by looking at how EU citizens arriving in the UK will be treated, as set out in the Brexit White Paper, this allows us to know how we’ll be treated as UK citizens visiting the EU. 

Well, you need a Standard Visitor Visa, which will set you back around £90 plus. Don’t feel like adding £93 per person to your holiday over to France or Spain? Not to fear; the White Paper promises us all “reciprocal visa-free travel arrangements to enable UK and EU citizens to continue to travel freely for tourism in the future”. 

Problem solved?

Not quite – “visa free” isn’t as simple as it sounds, as if you have unchecked tourists being able to arrive by simply saying they’re a tourist, what’s to stop them staying far beyond a period of tourism? There needs to be some kind of register at least, if there is no visa system or EU free movement. With Brexit, we might not be “leaving Europe”, but it looks set to become far less accessible.
