Common Travel Area will continue to function as-is after no-deal Brexit


The Common Travel Area (CTA) would continue to function as it currently does in the event of a no-deal Brexit, according to a new "technical notice" published by the UK government.

The guidance, published yesterday, states: "If you are an Irish citizen you would continue to have the right to enter and remain in the UK, as now. You are not required to do anything to protect your status.

"In addition, you would continue to enjoy the reciprocal rights associated with the CTA in the same way that British citizens in Ireland would if there is no deal. These rights include the right to work, study and vote, access to social welfare benefits and health services."

It continues to say that "domestic legislation and agreements would be updated" if necessary to ensure that the CTA rights "continue to have a clear legal basis".

The CTA was established in 1923 to guarantee freedom of movement between the UK and the newly-independent Irish state.

The new guidance is one of the latest of 84 notices due to be published by the Department for Exiting the European Union (DExEU) by the end of September.

Some readers will note that Ryanair who get away with demanding Passports for photo identification have diluted this as every flight in from UK you are shepherded through Passport Control though they are NOT entitled to demand passport. Going into UK one is not asked for Passport routinely.

I believe the reason Ryanair do this is because they want to have proper ID for their passengers. Therefore they make it a condition of carriage that you have a passport, which is their right.

Very interesting. But of course they could get rid of the CTA if they wanted. Though with so many links between the two countries and so many of us being inter-related it would be terrible if they did get rid of it.

Well you could use the same justifications for not leaving the EU.
