Brits Could Face New Travel Restrictions To Europe In January – Travel Off Path

In a blow to winter holiday hopes, the EU Commission has indicated that UK travelers could face restrictions on non-essential trips to European countries from January 1.

When the UK leaves the Brexit transition period at the end of the year, it will join a list of third countries from which visitors to the EU are currently not allowed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with some exemptions. The news is likely to cause considerable confusion and concern for British travelers, being announced as negotiations over a trade deal between the UK and the EU come down to the wire, amid concerns over travel, flights and border disruption if no deal is agreed.
