The British will pay £6, visiting the EU countries

At the moment, the European Commission is considering the possibility to oblige the British to receive an electronic visa before they enter the European Union and pay £6 for it. After Brexit, the British will be forced to pay for the visa whenever they want to visit one of the 27 countries of the European Union. In Brussel they said: "According to the negotiations on Brexit, after March 29th, 2019, other rules will be applied to the British".

Paying for the visa will be done through the electronic system of travel authorisation (ETIAS - EU travel information and authorisation sуstem). The system, introduced for strengthening of security measures after terrorist attacks in France and Belgium, will oblige citizens of all countries with which the European Union has a visa-free regime agreement, notify about the trip and pay for it. This decision is designed “to protect the external borders of the European Union" in order to allow the European Parliament "to stop those who may threaten our citizens".

Since Britain will soon cease to be part of the association of 28 states, the British will not be able to travel freely and free of charge to 27 EU countries. Valentin Radev, Bulgarian minister, said: "This agreement is another important step to protect the external borders of the European Union. Understanding of who is entering the EU even before a person will come closer to the border, will help us stop the criminals who might be threatening our citizens".

If it will be voted for this proposal, the British will have to pay £6 to apply via the electronic travel information and authorisation sуstem ETIAS. The information specified in each application will be automatically checked with the EC and Interpol data to determine if there is a reason for refusing entry. Before letting passengers on board, all carriers also will have to check whether the passengers have all the necessary entry permits. Before sending it for approval to the European Council, the European Parliament will vote for this proposal.
