Not from outside the EU you can’t, which is what I said.
........ so the Spanish enclaves of Cueta and Melilla would cover that.


You would not be able to enter or leave either on an EU ID unless you were travelling to or from an EU country.


This is what you said "Schengen countries will allow free travel internally but I think you would still need more than an ID card to get into them from outside. That was the argument."

Read what it says …… not exactly free movement is it?

Maybe the UK will do the same once it regains full control over its borders and can select who they will or will not let in?

However, Morocco will only accept European Identity Cards for trips organized by tour operators. Tour operators should present a list of EU tourists to the Moroccan General Directorate for National Security (DGSN) 72 hours before they arrive.

No because the UK will be an External country of the EEA and you would need a FULL PASSPORT to get ´back home ´ to the EEA after your UK holiday ,something that most dont have coz they dont go to iran,iraq,upper volta for two weeks in the sun ..
it means a person living in the ARCTIC can book a holiday and travel to the SAHARA by plane without a PASSPORT .
MA has this rule to stop hippies from going there for the dope ..
I see norway is bringing in ID cards to make it easy to travel in the EEA next year

someone threw in that bit about MA but its not the main point ,and you cluching at straws that the camels want to eat ..

I wouldn't want to be there, it looks like a bloody long camel ride to the nearest pub!

Where's the nearest pub? Spain? :shock:

You're right, rabbit! :lol:

You really are irritating. :|

Full quote: "Once again you move the goal posts! Internal to the EU an ID card is OK but to move around outside the EU you need a passport. Schengen countries will allow free travel internally but I think you would still need more than an ID card to get into them *from outside*. That was the argument."

(i.e. from outside Europe) the meaning of 'outside' is obvious in the context of the whole quote.

They will maintain their status in Cypriot society and not be become illegal migrants from a third country overnight, so don't worry!
preparations are underway as we speak.

They are all in Europe ....... those not EU appear to be principalities ..... you're moving goal posts again. So, basically you think you would get into any country except the UK with just an ID card? Dream on!

How did you and your German wife manage to get entry into Bermuda on an EU. ID card, and presumably no multiple entry/re-entry transit visa ...... you must know people in VERY high places or are you an illegal immigrant? :roll:
