Brits will have to pay £7 fee to enter EU next year

BRITS will have to start paying €7 per person and pre-register their details in order to enter the European Union from next year. 

Reports had surfaced in various European media in recent weeks that access to all Schengen EU countries would come at a cost from 2022, and when approached by City A.M. this morning, a spokesperson for the European Commission in Brussels confirmed all British travellers will have to pay a €7 visa fee.

The so-called European Travel and Information and Authorisation Scheme (ETIAS) enables citizens of 61 non-EU countries to visit the EU Schengen area with travel pre-authorisation, rather than a full visa.

The European Commission confirmed that, from late 2022, the UK will be part of ETIAS, meaning that Brits will have to pre-register their details before any trip, as well as pay the €7 levy. 

Once the pre-authorisation has been approved, British passport holders will be allowed to stay in Europe up to 90 days. 

The European Commission confirmed the payment and pre-registration will apply for any trips to all Schengen area states, plus the non-Schengen micro-states of Andorra and Monaco. 

This means the ETIAS requirements will be in place for any trip to Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Lithuania, Latvia, San Marino, Estonia, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Italy, Greece, Czech Republic, Malta, Monaco, Liechtenstein, Iceland, Norway, Switzerland Vatican City.

More Good News! https://inews.co.uk/news/politics/brexit-prices-rise-import-rules-toughened-new-year-1367298 Prices could rise even more as Brexit import rules are toughened up in New Year Thanks to the Great British Brexit, not only will it cost more to travel, it will cost more to import, cost more to export, and harder to get goods to and from Europe. This is, of course exactly as promised - "Trade with the EU will be tariff-free and involve minimal bureaucracy". So the extra tarrifs and paperwork required from Jan 1st simply do not exist. Thankfully any additional costs will be paid for by the £350M a week saving. No, wait, that's going to the NHS. No, it isn't, the NI increase is going to the NHS. So where is this £350M a week going?
