LThe government aims to make border crossing “fully digital by the end of 2025”.
The Home Office said in a statement that those coming to the UK without a visa or immigration status should apply online for travel authorization (ETA) as a model for traveling to the United States. “Approximately 30 million ETA applications are expected to be processed each year.”
The new system will allow automated and pre-arrival security checks aimed at “preventing serious foreign criminals from entering the UK”.
Tightening immigration conditions is one of the goals of Brexit supporters now that has ended the independence movement between the United Kingdom and the European Union.
“Now we have regained control, we have ended the independence movement and security is at the heart of our immigration strategy,” Patel said in a statement. “Our new all-digital frontier will allow people inside and outside the country to count, which will allow them to control who comes to the UK,” he said.
The ministry points out that the number of immigrants to the UK has not been accurately cited, citing an example of a ‘settlement scheme’ that allows EU citizens to register to have lived in the country before 31 December 2020. The same rights to live, work and access social security in the UK after Brexit.
By the end of April, more than 5.4 million applications and more than 4.9 million positions had been submitted, the number of EU citizens living in the UK previously estimated at 3 million.
The plan is part of a reform of immigration policy that is now based on the “points” system that supports the intelligent mind to the detriment of less skilled workers. To obtain a visa, skills, knowledge of English and financial resources are taken into account.
In March, the British government also proposed reform of the asylum system, which would no longer grant people the same rights as whether they had entered the country legally or illegally.
