Advice for visitors on travel to Britain in 2019

23 January 2019

Following the recent Brexit developments, we’ve produced advice for visitors on travel to Britain in 2019 and beyond (details below correct as of Wednesday 23 January 2019):

Britain is packed full of amazing experiences all year round and 2019 is going to be no exception. From sporting events to literary celebrations, from music festivals to new gallery openings, visitors to Britain during 2019 are in for a cultural extravaganza.

There is reassurance from both the UK Government and the European Commission that flights will continue to operate between the UK and the EU after the 29 March 2019 regardless of the wider Brexit negotiations.

EU nationals will be able to continue to travel on ID cards until at least 2021. It is recommended that visitors who are citizens of current EU Member States and who have a valid passport use the e-gates to make entry quick and easy. Visitors who are citizens of current EU member states will continue to be able to travel without a visa and from summer 2019, eligible travellers from Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, the United States, Singapore and South Korea will be able to use e-gates at 14 ports, both in the UK and at Eurostar terminals at Brussels and Paris. Please check the UK government website for the latest advice. 

The UK’s hotels, shops and visitor attractions are also offering great value so it really is a great time to book a trip right now. We look forward to welcoming you to Britain soon.
