EU to grant visa-free access to UK nationals, if the UK reciprocates 

UK nationals would be able to travel to the EU for up to 90 days without a visa after Brexit, as long as EU nationals also benefit from visa-free access to the UK.

 MEPs are set to vote on Thursday on a draft law that will apply when the UK leaves the European Union. UK nationals who are British citizens will not need a visa for stays in the EU of up to 90 days in any 180-day period, for business, tourism or to visit relatives or friends. These conditions will not include those wishing to work.

The United Kingdom will be included in the list of more than sixty non-EU countries and territories whose nationals do not need to request a visa to enter the EU for short stays. The UK will have to grant the same rights to EU nationals wishing to enter the UK.

Prior to the vote in plenary, the Civil Liberties Committee MEPs will vote on the compromise reached with the Council on Wednesday morning.

Procedure: Codecision, first reading agreement
