Get ready for Brexit

To visit Europe after Brexit there are things you need to do before you travel. These include:

  • check your UK passport is valid for travel to Europe using the GOV.UK passport checker
  • get travel insurance that provides health cover in Europe
  • check you have the right driving documents
  • check pet travel rules with your vet at least 4 months before you travel

Passports and visas

  • you don’t need a visa to travel to Portugal, but your passport should be valid for the period of your stay

  • you must show some form of identification if asked by the police or judicial authorities; in most cases, it should be sufficient to carry a photocopy of the data page of your passport, but you can be asked to produce the original document

  • if you lose your passport, you can apply for an emergency travel document online; you will have to collect the document from the Consulate in Lisbon or Portimão; travel from Porto to Lisbon takes at least 4 hours and to Portimão at least 8, so remember to factor this in to your travel arrangements

  • remember to bring your European Health Insurance Card(EHIC) but also take out travel insurance even if you’re only going for a short period, it could save you a lot of money if you get into difficulties.
