Passport Required for Travel to the United Kingdom
Dutch nationals who want to visit the United Kingdom must be able to present a valid passport at the border from Friday.
Due to Brexit, an identity document is no longer sufficient to enter Great Britain. This applies to almost all travellers from the European Union.
The United Kingdom left the EU 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 who lived in the UK before 31 December 2020 can still use their ID cards to cross the border. In addition, they will need a document that proves that they have lived in the country long enough. UK government-licensed frontier workers will be able to use ID until the end of 2025.
