What documents are required to travel within the EU?
Which documents do I need to have with my during my travels?
Are there border controls within the EU?
You will not need a visa for travelling within the EU.
What are the implications when travelling without a valid travel document?
As there are no EU rules on travelling without a valid travel document, conditions and procedures vary widely from country to country (and may change without notice). If you have already set off on your trip and you’re in the EU, your first port of call should be your country’s consulate or embassy.
Bear in mind that, even where some countries allow you to leave or enter their territory without a valid travel document, you may still need to show one in countries you are transiting through.
What if my travel document is lost or stolen?
The EU countries have systems in place to deal with such cases. It is, though, up to each EU country to decide whether and/or when it allows EU citizens to enter or exit their territory without a valid travel document.
