In a bid to make up for the post-Brexit budget windfall; the EU is mulling over plans to charge UK holiday makers £10 to visit the continent.

With the UK se to ditch the EU’s freedom of movement policies, British tourists hoping to travel to Spain, Italy or other destinations within the bloc will likely be charged for the pleasure.

An agreement was reached by the Bulgarian Council presidency and European Parliament representatives for the European travel information and authorisation system (ETIAS).

Valentin Radev, the Bulgarian interior minister, said: “Today’s agreement is another important step in protecting the EU’s external borders.

“By knowing who is coming to the EU before they even arrive at the border, we will be better able to stop those who may pose a threat to our citizens.”

The announcement means, unless an agreement is reached with Brussels, Britons would have to pay for each ETIAS application before they journey.

The EU announcement reads: “ETIAS will allow for advance checks and, if necessary, deny travel authorisation to visa-exempt third-country nationals travelling to the Schengen area.”
