As part of the government’s plans to strengthen the UK border through digitisation, the Home Office is launching an Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA) scheme.
The ETA scheme will apply to most visitors to the UK who do not need a visa for stays of less than six months, and who do not have any other immigration status prior to travelling.
The ETA scheme will be implemented in a phased manner, on a nationality basis, over the next two years.
Portuguese citizens will be included in the scheme in due course.
For official updates regarding the UK ETA scheme, please check the official GOV.UK guidance page here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/electronic-travel-authorisation-eta
From 1 January 2022, if you sell goods to the EU, or buy goods from the EU and bring them into the UK, you will need to be able to prove that they meet the rules of origin in order to use preferential tariffs (where applied).
If you cannot prove the origin of the products you’re importing or exporting, the full rate of customs duty will be charged.
Further information of rules of origin are available at https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/rules-of-origin-for-goods-moving-between-the-uk-and-eu, https://www.gov.uk/guidance/claiming-preferential-rates-of-duty-between-the-uk-and-eu and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZYsHVI9kWQ.
