Dutch citizens who wish to travel to the United Kingdom must be able to present a valid passport at the border starting Friday. Because of Brexit, an identity document is no longer sufficient to enter Great Britain. This applies to almost all travelers to the European Union.
The United Kingdom left the European Union in early 2020, ending the free movement of more than 500 million people between the country and the 27 EU states. The new passport requirement applies to England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
EU citizens living in the United Kingdom before 31 December 2020 can still use their ID card to cross the border. In addition, they will need a document that proves that they have been living in the country for a long time. Marginal workers licensed by the UK government will be able to use IDs by the end of 2025.
