The British government announced that “the decision to prevent Europeans from entering Britain with identity cards issued by the European Union has entered into force as of today, Friday.”

Under plans announced by the British government a year ago, most EU, EEA and Swiss citizens will need a valid passport to enter the UK, with border officials no longer accepting national identity cards as a travel document from 1 October.

The government explained that “EU and European Economic Area nationals and Swiss who have previously resided in the UK and have been granted residency in Britain will still be able to use their national identity cards at the border until 2025.”

The British Home Secretary, Riti Patel, said in a statement yesterday, Thursday, that Britain must “tighten the screws on criminals who seek to enter our country illegally using false documents,” noting that “while stopping the use of unsecure identity cards, we are strengthening our borders.” We give priority to people, to take back control of our immigration system.”
