Australian passport holders headed for Britain
Nanjing Night Net

While the vote in favour of Brexit could be interpreted as a protest against the number of foreigners living and working in Britain – and Poles in particular – those who visit on holiday are quarantined from that sentiment. If the British economy takes a pounding post Brexit, the British government would not want to stifle tourism by making it more difficult for Australian passport holders to visit. Therefore it is unlikely that the current rules will change.

Australian passport holders headed for Europe

Most of continental Europe is part of the Schengen Area, which was established to allow the free flow of goods and people within Europe, borderless travel in other words. Britain is not part of it. Australian passport holders are permitted to enter the Schengen Area and travel freely without a visa for up to 90 days within a six-month period. That’s likely to stay the same.

Australian residents with British passports

More than a million Australian residents hold current British passports. In 2014, British residents made more than 40 million trips to Europe, spending over £16 billion. If the GBP continues to wallow against the euro, Brits will have less to spend when they travel to eurozone countries, leading to less travel. It seems unlikely, therefore, that European destinations favoured by British residents would further dampen enthusiasm by restricting entry. Therefore I’m predicting that Aussie residents with British passports will continue to find the European door open.
