Since my earlier petition on the 'official' parliamentary petitions site (see below) is still being considered by the petitions review panel, I've started another one on the Change.org site.

The thrust of the new petition is as follows:

Demand 6 months visa-free tourism in the EU for Brits

There are no fewer than 56 different nationalities that can travel to the UK for up to six months tourism without needing a visa – including ones as diverse as Paraguay, Namibia and Vanuatu!

A similar arrangement will presumably be extended to EU citizens after the transition period. However, this should only be in return for equal rights for UK tourists to travel for up to six months in the EU without requiring a visa.


This seems a perfectly reasonable position for the Government's negotiating team to adopt and if sufficient numbers sign the petition it may still gain some traction even at this eleventh hour.

If this issue matters to you, please sign it at http://chng.it/FhyQtJykM7 and get all your cruising friends to sign it. Also write to your MP if you haven't already.

There's no guarantee of success - especially at this late stage - but one thing is certain: if we all do nothing it won't happen!
