Brits will soon face additional financial checks when travelling to Spain, and will also require a paid pass to travel to all EU countries.
British tourists visiting Spain will soon fall into the same category as other non-EU visitors, and they may be required to show proof of accommodation and a return ticket under new rules.
However, while Britons are reeling from the news, one European commentator has urged the UK to “stop complaining” about the Brexit changes.
“Brexit means Brexit,” French political commentator Julian Hoez tweeted. “Stop complaining to Europeans and start complaining to your MPs and local representatives.”
His tweet comes as British tourists must prove they can spend at least £85 per day in order to enter Spain, one of Europe’s most popular vacation destinations.
Furthermore, under new rules set to take effect in early 2023, all non-EU tourists will be required to apply for the European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS) visa before travelling.
The new document is expected to cost around €7 (£6) and will apply to anyone between the ages of 18 and 70.
