Are you travelling by ferry on one of our packages and worried about how Brexit might effect this? Please find travel advice issued by Irish Ferries and Stena Line below.

Irish and British citizens do not strictly require a passport to travel between the two countries, but some form of (photo) identification is however required.

Brexit: If the UK leaves the EU with no deal, the Common Travel Area (CTA) arrangements are protected, and our current advice continues to apply. 

Please note that all other nationalities (except Irish or British citizens) require a passport. They should also check with their respective embassies before travelling as they may need a visa.

Passengers who arrive at our ports without current valid documentation may not be allowed to enter either Ireland or Britain.  Useful means of identification when travelling on these routes include:

  • Valid passport
  • Photographic Driving License
  • International Student Card
  • Government issued photographic ID cards
  • Health insurance/social security photographic ID cards
  • Photographic bus/train pass
  • Place of work photographic ID
  • Birth certificates (for under 18’s with no photo ID)

Please note that we do need the following information for each person travelling by ferry to the UK or France:

  • Date of Birth
  • Nationality
