The Political Declaration setting out the framework for the future relationship between the EU and the UK is clear that both side will explore the possibility to facilitate the crossing of their respective borders for legitimate travel. This would ensure smooth passage for UK nationals when they travel to the EU, for example on business or on holiday, and vice versa for EU citizens. The detail of how these mobility provisions will apply under the future relationship will be for further negotiation with the EU.
