What are the consequences of Brexit?

The date when the United Kingdom leaves the EU is now set for 1 January 2021.

So, whatever the outcome of the current negotiations, on 1 January Brexit will mean:

  • the reinstatement of a hard border and the related immigration controls
  • management of customs clearance and transit documents
  • management of import declarations (alcohol, tobacco, visitors, etc.) and export duty free
  • sanitary and phytosanitary border controls on live animals and products of animal and plant origin

All goods coming from or entering the United Kingdom will be treated as "third country" goods.
