Petition Seek visa-free travel to Europe for BRP holders
The problem is that holders of a UK Biometric Residence Permit (BRP), who are non-EU citizens, cannot currently travel to Europe using their BRP cards as a valid travel documents.
A BRP is a biometric residence permit that is issued by the UK Government to foreign nationals who have been granted permission to reside in the UK for more than six months. The BRP serves as evidence of a person's right to stay and work in the UK.
Currently, UK citizens and citizens of some countries, including the US, Canada, Australia, and Japan, do not require a visa to enter most European countries for tourism or business purposes for up to 90 days within a 180-day period.
