Following the ratification of the Withdrawal Agreement, there will be a transition period up to 31st December during which no significant changes are expected. As the terms of our departure from the EU become clearer, we will provide further updates of relevant information as it becomes available.
We are taking all proportionate steps to preserve the integrity of our transport system to ensure the continued viability and success of our transportation system during the process of leaving the European Union.
Passport rules, travelling with your pet, and rules for driving in Europe may change after Brexit. Keep up to date with information on travelling in Europe: Visit Europe from 1 January 2021 on GOV.UK
Due to the transition arrangement in the Withdrawal Agreement, no additional checks are expected in ports until 1st January 2021.
However, as additional information becomes available, changes in border processes may become necessary in 2021. If and when this will be the case, we will provide additional information for those using Welsh ports.
Welsh Government has been working with port operators, ferry operators, local authorities, UK government and other stakeholders over recent months to mitigate and minimise disruption to the ports and to local communities. We will continue to meet and work closely with them to monitor the likely impact of the decisions taken within the transition period and beyond.
There will not be any changes to flights between the UK and European destinations from the 31 January. Any new requirements will be confirmed as the terms of the UK’s departure from the EU are finalised. If you are planning to fly to a European destination please seek the latest advice before you travel to ensure that you are prepared. Please visit:
