European Travel

Hi All

Now Brexit has happened, how do we stand on European travel. I have heard it is 90 days max, is that for each country or Europe as a whole ?

Cheers
Dave

Yep 90 days within any 180. No exceptions unless you can get a residency or long stay visa for one particular country. Expensive, many hoops to jump through and not guaranteed. Big fines and possible bans for breaches. I assumed every motorhomer would have known this for ages. Its been well discussed on all the forums.

Barryd I only use this forum and not as much as I used to in the early days.

I did not follow ANY of the Brexit hoo har until after Dec 31st because like everything else, people just belly ached about it.

It is what it is so I waited until everything was final.

Now I know, thanks for the heads up.

We only travel for 85 days as a rule

Both EHIC cards have 4 years on them

Green Card automatically issued with our van insurance - we will get driving permits from the P.O when needed

So thats us covered

At present you cannot enter France from the UK unless it is for a specific reason approved by the gfrench Government for eg return to French residence, but not a second home.

How long that will last is unknown, probably at least 6 months until the UK has CoVid under control.

That means that if you want to go to Europe, you must avoid Calais, Boulogne, Dieppe, Le Havrem St Mali, Roscoff Santander and Bilbao. That does not leave many ways to avoid France.

Denmark ? Belgium ? Not cheap options.

In other words don't plan to use your 90 / 180 day permission, extended tours around Europe are unlikely to be permissible wef 1st January 2021.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

I read if you do want to go over your 90 days you need to apply for a visa.

Yep my previous link explains that you can apply, having it granted is another matter.

It has now been announced that EHIC cards will still be valid to expiry date and then a GHIC card will replace it and do the same thing for EU countries, but not for Schengen countries which are not EU as EHIC does, i.e. Norway, Iceland, Lichtenstein and Switzerland, although Norway has a separate arrangement for the British and you will get some treatment, but you need to look for details.
