After Brexit, UK citizens are subject to the same rules as non-EU countries and pay to enter the European countries that make up the EU. schengen area.

This includes popular holiday destinations Spain, Portugal, France and Greece.

Before traveling, Britons will need to fill out the European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS) which costs €7.

Applicants will be asked to provide information about their identity, passport, education, work, recent travel and criminal record.

Those under 18 or over 70 will be exempt.

The visa waiver form can be applied online and is valid for three years or until your passport expires.

The government has yet to launch the website but it is expected that ETIAS will be introduced by the end of 2022.

One of the European countries Britons will have to pay to enter is Italy – a popular choice for vacationers.

But if the British go to a particular city, they will have to pay a second tax.

Venice will apply a new fee from this year, where Tourists must book in advance and pay a daily fee to enter.

Visitors will have to pay €5 and go through a turnstile to enter the city.

The tax – which is expected to come into effect within the next few weeks – is being introduced to tackle overtourism.

If the city is too crowded, then the electric turnstiles will make it impossible for tourists to enter.

There will be no fees for those vacationing at hotels in Venice, as well as residents and children under the age of six.
