More than 30 million people travel to Britain every year to take advantage of the country’s world-class attractions, culture and business opportunities. Although the UK will continue to welcome visitors from the EU and rest of the world, there may be some changes to what travellers need to do to visit or stay long-term in the UK after the EU Exit.
Visit Lincoln would like travellers to the UK, and the businesses that will welcome them, to be informed about how an EU Exit may affect them. We feel it is important to share the information we have received from the national tourism organisations, the Tourism Alliance and Visit Britain with Lincolnshire businesses, and to ensure overseas visitors are clear on their rights and obligations during their visit.
The advice is as follows:
If the UK leaves the EU with a deal
In a nutshell, the process for entering the UK will remain much the same as it is now until 2021 if the UK leaves the EU with a deal.
If the UK leaves without a deal
Stay informed about how the UK leaving the EU could affect you if you are planning to travel to the UK, and the steps you may need to take. Visit gov.uk/visitukaftereuexit for the latest information.
