London: The UK’s ruling Conservatives have said that visitors from the European Union (EU) would require an electronic clearance before traveling to the country after Brexit, it was reported on Monday.
Travelers from Europe currently only require an ID card to gain entry. But under the Conservatives’ proposed system, they would require passports and have to fill in an online form before their trip, The Daily Mail said in a report.
The changes were outlined by Home Secretary Priti Patel on Sunday.
“When people voted to leave in 2016 they were voting to take back control of our borders. After Brexit we will introduce an Australian-style points-based immigration system and take steps to improve the security of the UK,” Patel told the media here. (IANS)
