New Brexit rules

As the UK has left the EU and the Brexit transition period ended on 31 December 2020, new rules apply to things like travel and doing business with Europe which means many of us need to make changes.

We are committed to supporting people across the city to prepare and make you aware of the actions you need to take from travel insurance and passports, to staying in the UK.
