Just landing at the airport to change planes would cost £35

Apply for this visa if you need to pass through the UK on your way to another country.

How long you can stay and how much the visa costs depends on whether you pass through UK border control.

If you go through border control
Can work Can study How long you can stay Cost
No No 48 hours £64
If you do not pass through border control
Can work Can study How long you can stay Cost
No No Your onward journey should be within 24 hours £35

Re: Brexit

This will not encourage a no-deal Brexit.
Quote:
Brexit news - live: Anger as government admits it will fail to strike Japan or Turkey trade pacts by exit day in event of no-deal
The government has been accused of breaking its promises after it emerged that key trade deals would not be ready by Brexit day in a no-deal scenario.
Whitehall documents reveal agreements with Japan, Algeria and Turkey will not be rubber-stamped by March 29 – despite Liam Fox’s assurance that deals would be ready at “one second after midnight in March”.

Re: Brexit

I was looking forward to a free trade deal with Algeria as well.

lol. Why worry about a minor country like Japan when we have that economic superpower the Faeroes deal inked.

---------- Post added at 22:20 ---------- Previous post was at 20:48 ----------

Looks like a no deal is increasingly unlikely.
Quote:
Group of 100 Conservative MPs ready to force Brexit delay if May's deal fails
Theresa May has been warned by a group of 100 moderate Tory MPs that they are prepared to rebel against the Government to force her to delay Brexit if she cannot reach a deal.
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics...ctors-reshape/

I'm sure Eurostar staff and passengers will be mightily relieved if no deal can be avoided as seems likely from the previous article.
Quote:
No-deal Brexit risks Eurostar ‘chaos’ at St Pancras
Queues of up to 15,000 people could stretch for a mile if the UK drops out of the EU without an exit agreement, according to a report drawn up by the British government.

Re: Brexit

I wouldn't worry too much about the Eurostar stuff, when the queues at 'their' end get to 1.6 kilometers they'll soon sort something out

Because that's where the growth is, did you not get the memo?

GDP growth for Faroes (est 2014) 5.9%
GDP growth for Japan (actual 2018) 0.30%

Exports to the UK;

Faroes $129.3m
Japan $50.2bn

Re: Brexit

Another nail in the coffin for no deal?
Quote:
  • Amber Rudd, David Gauke and Greg Clark claim they're prepared to defy the PM
  • Writing in the Daily Mail, they warn No Deal departure would wreck the economy and are prepared to force Mrs May to extend Article 50 or delay Britain’s EU exit
  • They say it remains their hope Parliament agrees a deal ‘in the next few days’
