New travel regulation between UK and EU: what you need to know

The new travel regulation between the United Kingdom and Europen Union will bring about significant changes in the nautical sector.

As a leading supplier of ship agency, yachting, logistics and customs services, Lantimar Group is closely monitoring the situation to provide guidance and support to our clients.

One of the key changes introduced by the new directive is the requirement for UK citizens to apply for a three-year visa to enter the European Union, according to Majorca Daily Bulletin. The new European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS) plan will be launched in November 2023, which means that after this date, a valid visa will be mandatory for Britons.

The ETIAS travel authorization is mandatory for short-term stays of up to 90 days within a 180-day period and will enable crew members to travel freely between the UK and EU for work purposes. 

In addition to the ETIAS requirement, crew members must also hold a valid passport and meet any additional requirements specific to their destination country. The passport will need to be valid a minimum of three months after the date of return to the UK. Moreover, the new regulation will also impact the embarkation and disembarkation process, as well as the procedures for obtaining visas and immigration formalities.

At Lantimar Group, we are well-equipped to assist with all these new requirements and help crew members and guests navigate the new regulation with ease. Our team of experts will assist with the ETIAS application process, providing guidance on the required documents, and offer support with the legal procedures and coordination with the appropriate embassy.

In conclusion, the new travel regulation between the UK and EU will have a significant impact on the nautical sector and the travel of crew members.
