Hi,
Has anyone got any update on the mount of bait you can take to France. For your own personal use.

Wonder how much delay they'll be at the ports now that every UK passport will need an entry and then exit stamp at passport control? Fridays and Saturdays could be interesting 😂

Travelling in a car with a few suitcases, holidaymakers won't see much of a change. Travelling in a van stocked up with boilies and food could very well be a different matter. There will now be a 20kg limit on bait and a prohibition on meat and dairy products - for bait containing meat/dairy or in unmarked bags I'm unsure where that will fall.

https://www.douane.gouv.fr/sites/default/files/2020-12/23/Brochure-voyageurs-Brexit-23122020.pdf

But of course much of how this will effect anglers travelling over will depend upon whether or not the Douane actually police these new rules and what the penalties will be if caught flouting them.

The 90/180 rule won't be a problem for anglers. Easy for an international driving permit, 5 quid at the post office. I can see them maybe having a similar set up at airports as they do with Switzerland. You'll notice at passport control it says EU and Swiss passports and then all others. Bit if luck it will be EU, Swiss and UK in future.

Your current EHIC card is valid until the expiry date on it . After that they are talking about a similar arrangement , the main difference being that it wonít cover pre existing conditions .
The 90 day limit isnít really a problem for 90 % of people who go to France etc.
Yes , we will have to que in a different line for passports etc but thatís not a major ..
I expect an International driving licence and vehicle green card will be the only real difference most people will notice .
I fish in France a fair bit ( just back a few days ago ) and I really donít think the situation is going to be a major ... Iíll let you know though as Iím hopefully heading back over on the 6th 😄

Hi,
Can not imagine travelling in Europe getting easier. the big change that I see is that you will be only allowed to spend 90 days in Europe in a rolling 12 months after that you will need to apply for a Visa.
No more European Health Insurance card. probably means more expensive holiday insurance.
Back to the old additional driving "licence". that we once got from the post office.
If we fly we will probably have to stand in the other queue.
Wonder if the EU brings back the landing cards ?
Don't think we need to worry about any of this for many months. I am 65 plus & diabetic when I look online I see that there are 9.9M to 12.3M ahead of me in the vaccination queue. If all goes well I get my jab late March 2021.


Cheers

Now we have a free trade deal with the EU it's going to be a lot easier travelling to France.

It's just Covid that is the issue now....

Increase in paperwork , increase in waiting times , increase in speeding fines 😁 , but not enough to stop people travelling to the theatre of dreams for a week a year .

There may be need for covid negative checks , but this covid has a long way to run , and shows in complete contrast to France we are a very over populated rock in the north sea .

I will be living in France after Christmas, so shouldnít be an issue for me. I would love to take up all your dates but I couldnít afford it.

Well if I can't take bait to France next year I won't be fishing there again. The lakes I fish don't sell bait or tackle and I would not be even sure we will be allowed to take particles either?
