Travel Advice Relating to Brexit

I am an EU resident and travelling to London for Capacity Europe. Will my travel be affected?

  • If you are travelling to the UK from the EU before 31st October, your normal travel arrangements will remain unchanged.
  • We do not anticipate any issues in leaving the UK on or after the 31st October, even in the event of a No-deal Brexit.

 

What if the UK government reaches a deal with the EU prior to the 31st October and brings forward the Brexit date?

  • If a deal has been reached the current plan is to have a transition period, meaning any changes to European travellers will be brought in over the course of the next 2 years. In this situation, we still anticipate that your arrangements will remain unchanged.

 

Do you anticipate any other disruptions to my travel and experience in London

  • We will be monitoring the situation in the UK around the current Brexit date (31st October 2019). There is a chance that there will be demonstrations and protests, most likely to be located in central London. Fortunately, our event is not located near the vicinity of where these protests may take place and we are not anticipating any major disruptions to the event.  In order to ensure that you experience minimal disturbance to your plans, we are committing to provide you with all the information you need regarding your visit to London during the lead up to the event and while at the event.

Is there anything that I can do in order to prepare for my trip with regards to Brexit?

As we draw nearer to the Leave date we advise that you keep informed through the official Government website-  https://www.gov.uk/guidance/visiting-the-uk-after-brexit as the information may be subject to change. We will also be updating this section with tips and guidelines specific to the event over the next few weeks.
