Thus, starting with this date, the Romanian non-resident citizens cannot enter the United Kingdom on the basis of an identity card.


According to the information provided by the British authorities, the European citizens (including Romanian citizens), non-resident in the United Kingdom who do not observe the new rules have no access to the British territory, shows a Minister of Foreign Affairs(MAE) press release.


The European citizens (including Romanian citizens) who are included in the EU Settlement Scheme can travel to the UK by using a valid national identity card until 31st December 2025 (on condition it is registered as travel document on the personal account UK Visas and Immigration – UKVI – created for registration with EUSS).


MAE uses this opportunity to remind the fact that, starting with 1st January 2021, non-resident Romanian citizens can travel to/transit the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland for tourism/visit, short stay, for a period of up to six months in a year, without visa. (https://www.gov.uk/guidance/). Even so, the Romanian citizens who want to work during the six months have to obtain, previously, an entry visa.
