European Parliament: Future EU/UK agreement should provide for short term visa free travel

    European Parliament, in a proposed mandate for negotiations on a new partnership with the UK, stated (12-Feb-2020) the agreement reached should provide for visa-free travel for short term visits, including short-term work-related trips, based on full reciprocity and non-discrimination. The EP also noted any agreement should establish conditions for entry and stay for research, study and training purposes and youth exchanges. Parliament commented: “Any agreement on the future relationship between the EU and the UK should include ambitious provisions to ensure the continuation of rights for both EU and UK citizens and their family members, in particular concerning the movement of persons and workers”.
