The ambassadors of 27 EU countries agreed on the introduction of a visa-free regime for UK citizens arriving in the Schengen area for a short time (90 days for any 180 days) after Brexit. 

The ambassadors instructed the Romanian presidency of the EU Council to start negotiations with the European Parliament in order to implement this decision at the legislative level. At the same time, the Council stressed that this measure should be mutual. 

With organized Brexit, these rules will take effect after the end of the transition period. It is expected to last until the end of 2020, and in the case of Brexit without an agreement – from the date of 29 March 2019.
