Swedes will no longer need a passport to travel to the UK or other non-Schengen EU member states, the Swedish government says.

It is planning to introduce a change to the law which will mean that a national ID card will be enough to cross the border as of July this year.

"We will now make it possible for Swedes to travel within the whole of the EU with just their ID card", interior minister Anders Ygman says in a statement.
