With the end in sight with Covid-19, many people are looking to plan their family summer holiday, but with 2021 remaining uncertain despite a road map from Boris Johnson, it is 2022 that many people are looking to plan their holiday. But how could both Brexit and Covid affect your holiday in 2022? To help you understand how this has changed, we will be outlining how Brexit could impact your summer holiday in 2022.
How Long Can I Travel For With Post Brexit Rules?
Though there was a vast amount of uncertainty around what would change as a result of Brexit and the uncertainty surrounding whether or not there would be a deal, the length of time that you can travel remains unchanged. You can travel for a total of 90 days before you will need to apply for any visas or other formal paperwork to lengthen your trip.
Can I Still Use My Passport?
If your passport is less than 10 years old or still has six months before it expires, you can still travel under the new Brexit rules without having to apply for a new passport. However, should you need to apply for a new passport before your summer holiday, you will be met with a shiny new blue passport as a result of the UK leaving the European Union. Any passport applications should be filled out in advance to ensure that they arrive at your door long before you are set to travel as you will not be able to board a flight without them.
The Rules Surrounding Health Insurances
When looking at how this can affect your health insurance policy there is very little that has changed. With health insurances policies remaining the same, it is the new Global Health Insurance Card that has several people confused. This is a replacement for the traditional EHIC and is available to use across several European countries. You can apply for a GHIC online and it can be used to gain access to health care at a reduced cost and several medications at a lower price in all European countries except for Liechtenstein, Norway, Iceland and Switzerland.
Travel Restrictions For Non-Eu Countries
The final element that you need to remember when travelling in 2022 is the travel restrictions that are being placed on those that are not in the EU. With the pandemic having a huge impact on travel across the world, it is important to make sure that you are aware of these restrictions and make sure that you are travelling in line with them, you will make sure that you are making sure you are safe regardless of the vaccine and other factors. This will be a huge part of the post-Covid world and will continue to impact us, regardless of the Brexit rules.
With this in mind, there are several elements that you need to be aware of as we move out of COVID-19 restrictions whilst navigating the Brexit rules when travelling. Where will you be starting when it comes to planning your trip.
