Dutch television broadcasts are very unusual material showing the inconveniences that travelers from Great Britain to the European Union may face. Due to Brexit, member states, including the Netherlands, have introduced special rules relating to, inter alia, bringing in food products. The article displays customs officials who control drivers entering the ferry connecting Great Britain to the Netherlands.

They remind drivers that under the new rules they are not allowed to transport meat, dairy products, fish, fruit or vegetables. Accordingly, the cameras recorded a funny case. A traveler has lost pork sandwiches due to new recipes.


– Maybe I’ll take out the meat and leave the bread for myself. – The driver asked to stop for inspection. – Everything must be confiscated. Welcome to the Brexit facts. I’m sorry – The Dutch customs official said with a smile.

The new regulations came into effect on January 1, 2021, when the transition period ended. British authorities advise travelers to “use, eat or dispose of prohibited foods” at the border. It should be noted that such prohibitions are not private. Most of the countries that do not belong to the European Union or that do not have special agreements with the European Union apply. However, it might come as a shock to British citizens, as they have been accustomed to completely different standards for years.
