Travelling to Europe
From 1 January 2021 there are new rules for travel to the EU, or to Switzerland, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein.
Staying in the UK if you’re an EU citizen
You need to apply to the EU settlement scheme before 30 June 2021 if you or your family are from the EU, or from Switzerland, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein.
Continue living and working in the EU
Living and working in an EU country depends on the rules in that country.
You may need to register or apply for residency. You should check that you’re covered for healthcare.
You may also need to exchange your UK driving licence for a licence issued by the EU country where you live.
Businesses that import and export goods
From 1 January 2021 you will need to make customs declarations to move goods into and out of the EU.
- get an EORI number if you do not already have one
- decide how you want to make customs declarations and whether you need to get someone to deal with customs for you
