Spain Italy France and Greece may copy Portugal to axe ‘third nation’ status
Daily Express says SPAIN, Italy, France and Greece could be set to follow in Portugal’s footsteps and axe the UK’s “third nation” status.
Following Brexit, British holidaymakers travelling to the EU are no longer able to zip through speedy passport e-gates but instead have to wait in long lines for passports to be manually checked. However, Portugal has become the first major EU country to break protocol and to treat British citizens broadly the same as EU citizens. Britons are now allowed to pass through the e-gates when arriving in Portugal – although they still have to get passports stamped in a separate queue.
With EU countries relying heavily on British tourism this summer, Paul Charles, chief executive of travel consultancy the PC Agency believes that other countries could follow suit.
