This will also apply to people returning to Switzerland from the UK. With a dog in the car, for example, a winter sports holiday in Switzerland is no longer possible.
Nor is the British ever allowed to bring meat or cheese products to Switzerland. Switzerland is not a member of the European Union, but in many respects it is closely linked to the European Union through many treaties. It is also a Schengen country. Switzerland will deal with Great Britain as a country outside the Schengen area and the European Union from January 1.
For the British, a lot could change in three weeks, depending on the final agreements with the European Union. As of January 1, nothing has changed since the kingdom withdrew from the union at the beginning of this year. During the transition period, all EU rules remained in effect. This is changing, so Brits have to think longer before traveling.
For example, they may have to vaccinate their pets and also have to have a green insurance card with them in the European Union by car. British people should also be aware that their passport must be valid for at least 6 months and they may not be allowed to stay in the European Union for more than 3 months at a time.
The many rules that have suddenly become relevant to “Brexitania” people are not just setbacks. The BBC confirmed that upon return from an EU country, 18 liters of wine and 42 liters of beer could still be imported duty-free in duty-free shops after December 31.
