British citizens who want to travel to EU member-states after Brexit are most likely to pay high fees for the EU visa. If Brexit happens without a deal, it could spell higher visa costs for British citizens who seek entry into the Schengen area. The fees could be reaching up to £52.60 for adults and £30.70 for children who are between 6 - 12 years of age. The visa has a 90-day validity. Apart from the expensive visa fees, applicants for the visa will have to fill a form with a total of 37 questions which are compulsory for the applicant to complete. The Schengen visa gives freedom of movement to its holders. This freedom of movement extends to non-EU member states like Switzerland, Norway, Liechtenstein, and Iceland. The UK and Ireland used to be members but have opted out. In 2017, Britons spent a whopping £46.5 million abroad on holidays. 75% of this amount was spent in member states of the European Union. This information was revealed by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
