French and German organisers of educational trips bringing up to 750,000 college students to the UK have warned that tough immigration rules after Brexit could halve the diversity of young Europeans visiting the UK. The UK authorities rejected a request by the organisers to exempt young people taking part in short organised educational trips from the new passport and visa rules which come into force on 1 October and said they wanted to strengthen the UK's borders. Up to five in 10 German children on school trips to Britain will have to apply for a £95 visa under the new rules, and French and German organisers said half of French trips were at risk for the same reason.
On 1 October, most citizens of the European Economic Area will need a passport, Foster said, adding that the travel list program will end on the same day, so students, regardless of nationality, will still need a passport and visa to visit the UK for organized school trips. French and German organisers have said that the UK's determination not to settle for an EU card as a ticket to enter the UK on 1 October could put households off, as the price of a passport can increase visitor value by 10-20% and is too little to be relied on at that age.
The UK government has rejected applications from tour operators to exempt children taking part in short-range educational trips from the new passport and visa rules which are due to come into force on 1 October, saying they are needed to strengthen the UK borders.
They said the new border restrictions would cause long-term damage to the country's relations with Europe. French and German organisers said the decision of the UK government to n'accept any further EU identity cards after October 1 would deter families from using passports and raise travel prices by 10-20%. Organisers said the thousands of UK-based family language schools, hotels and other businesses in the EU-country, particularly in cities such as Canterbury that specialise in education markets, were at risk of significant economic shocks.
A German citizen running an IT company was told that he would be detained at Heathrow Airport without proof of his residence status, with an indefinite right of residence and a British passport on the way.
Gibraltar will remain in the EU's borderless Schengen area after a last-minute deal with Spain. The UK's decision to leave the EU single market and customs union leaves it free to pursue an independent trade policy with the bloc. Cooperation in the fields of trade and science will continue as long as the United Kingdom is a paying member of the European Union's Horizon Europe programme for seven years.
On Monday 11 January the House of Commons will meet for the first time since 1973 to debate Britain’s post Brexit foreign policy strategy as an independent nation from the EU. The debate will reflect the priorities of the legislature and its government. Such debates offer an interesting insight into the countries and regions on which the UK will focus over the next decade as it tries to plug EU-size trade and policy gaps.
The pandemic restrictions have thrown a spanner in the works for the kind of scenery that greeted Britain's exit from the EU last January. The change of power that beckoned when the UK voted to leave the EU in June 2016 took place on New Year's Day. The post-Brexit transition period, which kept the UK bound by most EU rules, expired at midnight GMT (2300 UK time) on 31 December.
Under the terms of the transitional phase of the withdrawal agreement for Brexit, Gibraltar's relationship with the European Union will remain unchanged until the end of 2020, when it will be replaced by an EU-UK trade and cooperation agreement. On December 31, 2020, the UK and Spain agreed that the EU and UK would negotiate an agreement on Gibraltar's participation in the Schengen area to avoid a hard border with Spain. This agreement will not enter into force until after May 16 , but both sides are committed to minimizing delays at the border in the meantime.
Route E15, which connects Spain, France, England and Scotland, can be reached from the Spanish side via the CA 34 motorway. In Great Britain and other British areas, traffic in an area that shares a land border with Spain may be to the right of the speed limit (km / h).
A typical gamma-ray burst occurs about 20 billion light-years away, but can be observed from up to a billion light-years away, giving scientists a "front row seat" to the event. This short distance means that they can see the color of the photons and the energy of the radiation.
In the three days following a typical gamma-ray burst, the scientists were able to track the afterglow and describe the results as they thought about the radiation. The radiation spectrum had an energy of 3.3 tera electron volts, which is a trillion times more energy than the photons of visible light.
