Brexit & Privium
The United Kingdom (UK) is no longer a member of the European Union. As of January 1 2021 Brexit is a fact and the rules of a so-called “third country” will apply for the United Kingdom. However, even after the Brexit date of January 1, Privium will continue to provide their existing UK Privium members with a quicker border passage than the regular border passage. Unfortunately, it is not possible for individuals of British nationality to apply for a new Privium membership. Here, you can find general Brexit information.
I am a Privium member with a UK passport. What will change for me?
You are a Privium member and you will continue to be a Privium member. So even after January 1st 2021, Brexit is a fact, your Privium membership will be valid and the privileges will be still available to you. What will change is the fact that the Dutch government will come with an additional demand for British passport owners. Your passport needs to be stamped when entering and departing the EU, which will take place directly after passing through the Privium gate. This means you will be referred to the desk of the Dutch Royal Marechaussee. You can continue to make use of the Privium gates and you will not have to stand in a waiting line.
How to stay assured of your Privium membership?
We would like to draw your attention to the fact that, due to Brexit regulations, it will no longer be possible for U.K. citizens to become a new Privium member after 1 January 2021. Please make sure that you pay outstanding invoices in time. When we do not receive your payment in time, the Privium membership will unfortunately be cancelled. After 1 January 2021, it cannot be reactivated for U.K. citizens anymore. This is a Brexit consequence and a government decision. Privium has no alternative to offer in such cases.
Do you have a passport from the UK and would you like to become a Privium member?
Unfortunately, it is not possible for persons with British nationality to apply for a new Privium membership. This is a Brexit consequence and a government decision. Privium has no alternative to offer in such cases.
