European Visa

So I ask this question mostly in jest but also in part because I have/we have/nobody seems to know what the hell is going on/will happen in the future.

My question:
Will people still be able to swim the English channel without issue (or visa) if the UK is no longer a part of the EU?

I mean, we don't yet actually know the consequences of the "wonderful" people of this country (or 52% of them at least) voting to leave the EU. We currently don't know what is going to happen to our freedom of movement? Surely if we stop the freedom of movement of the rest of Europe into our country, our freedom of movement will also be highly affected? (Which is just wonderful!)

What does that mean for us Brits traveling onto the continent? Will we be ok for short term trips? But then we might need a visa for longer trips and if we want to move to another European country to live and work?

I'm pretty sure it's not really going to affect people who want to swim the channel too much (if at all?). Is it? Either way, I guess I'd better just hurry up and do it before they go and activate article 50. Fingers crossed for summer 2017!


  1. It’s really a great topic selected by you to discuss over here. Sometime it’s difficult to get approval on visa. Lot of people discuss such things online and try to find out solution for the same so sharing such things which relate to visa, can really help people.
