In light of the vote to leave the European Union, we’ve answered some key immediate questions you may have.

Am I still able to use my passport?

ABTA has confirmed yes you can use your passport – “Until the UK officially leaves the EU, not sooner than two years’ time, there will be no changes to passports.”

Do I now require a visa to travel?

According to ABTA “travellers are free to move between the UK and the EU as they were yesterday.”

Is my EHIC card still valid?

ABTA has also commented European Health Insurance cards remain valid.

Will there be any changes to my flight or holiday?

ABTA has said “People due to travel this summer will see little change to their travel arrangements.”
