star this property answer text <p>In a deal scenario, UK nationals and EU citizens will be able to travel to each others’ countries as now for the duration of an implementation period. We have said that we want to see visa-free arrangements for short term business visits as part of the future relationship, and will discuss how to facilitate the temporary mobility of self-employed professionals and employees providing services. The detail of this will be discussed in the next phase of negotiations.</p><p>The EU has confirmed that it will grant UK nationals visa-free travel to the EU for short stays after exit, even in a no deal scenario. This includes travel for purposes such as attending business meetings. Member States may require a visa if UK nationals intend to work and so UK nationals planning to undertake paid work in the EU should check with the Embassy of the countries they plan to travel to for what kind of visa or permit, if any, they will need. Further information can also be found on the FCO’s <a href="https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice" target="_blank">country-specific travel pages </a>and on our <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/providing-services-to-eea-and-efta-countries-after-eu-exit" target="_blank">advice pages for UK businesses</a> on gov.uk.</p><p>On 5 September 2019, to provide certainty to businesses, HMG announced in a policy paper that in the event of a no deal exit, EU citizens coming to the UK will be able to visit and work as they do now (meaning they will not require a visa in advance of their arrival in the UK). The policy paper can be accessed at GOV.UK via this <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/no-deal-immigration-arrangements-for-eu-citizens-moving-to-the-uk-after-brexit#future-immigration-system" target="_blank">link</a>.</p><p>https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/no-deal-immigration-arrangements-for-eu-citizens-moving-to-the-uk-after-brexit#future-immigration-system</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is deeply concerned by Iran’s destabilising involvement in regional conflicts, including in Syria and Yemen, through the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and IRGC Qods Force, and by reported financial and military support to militant and proscribed groups, such as Hizballah and the Houthis in Yemen. I raised these concerns directly during my visit to Iran in June 2019. We also condemn the IRGC’s involvement in recent attacks on shipping, including the attacks on tankers in the Gulf of Oman (for which the IRGC was almost certainly responsible) and the seizure of the UK-flagged vessel Stena Impero. The IRGC as a whole remains subject to EU and US sanctions; a large number of associated individuals and entities are also designated. We continue to review the list of proscribed groups, but do not routinely comment on consideration of specific organisations.</p> more like this
