The UK’s government has launched a new campaign to inform Britons who wish to travel to the European Union states after the Brexit transition period ends on December 31, about the recent potential changes.
According to the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), the new campaign is created to help the UK citizens prepare for the latest changes that they will be encountering beginning next year when travelling to Europe.
The campaign also contains information regarding passport validity, travelling with pets and travel insurance.
