Brexit, new rules for EU citizens: passport and registration before entering Britain

LONDON. Brexit has not yet arrived and everything will depend on the crucial elections of December 12, but the ultra-Eurosceptic government of Boris Johnson is already preparing for the treatment of EU citizens who want to enter Europe. And for Europeans there is no good news. First of all, if Johnson wins the elections and completes his plans, all European citizens who, starting from January 1, 2021, want to enter even as tourists in the United Kingdom, will have to fill in a form similar to the so-called Esta to overcome the state border US. It will be necessary to have the entry ok three days before arrival at any British airport, otherwise you will be sent home.

"Let's stop them at all costs": Hugh Grant's door to door to prevent Brexit

Not only that: the identity card used so far to travel will no longer be sufficient to overcome the British border: a passport will be required. Furthermore, Europeans with some convictions in the past (still not specified what kind) will also be sent back to their country of origin. And, in order for no one to be clever by going through the three months spent in the United Kingdom allowed by the "Esta" style tourist visa, the British Interior Ministry will also put in place an "In & Out" counting system, ie a calculation of how many Europeans have entered and those who have left the country in a certain period of time.

Brexit, John Bercow against the UK's exit from the EU: "The biggest mistake since the post-war period"

In the middle of an electoral campaign, the conservatives therefore want to point out their anti-immigration propaganda (Johnson wants an "Australian" model with the "points" evaluation of migrants) and on border control. Even if, we recall, these rules would only apply from January 1, 2021 and only if the following cases occurred first: namely if Johnson won the December 12 elections and passed his Brexit agreement, thus triggering the transition period to negotiate with the EU the future post-Brexit relations (during which the EU norms would still be valid) which will last until 31 December 2020. So the next day, in the power conservative scenario of Johnson, everything would change for EU citizens. Instead, should Johnson not win at the polls on December 12, the confusion would return sovereign, with only one certainty: EU citizens residing in the United Kingdom have until the end of 2020 to register for the Settlement Scheme program and obtain temporary residence or permanent. Meanwhile, the "Trumpiana" minister of the interior, Priti Patel (one that in the past called for the return of the death penalty) comments: "Due to EU laws, today drugs and weapons enter our country from Europe, increasing violence and dependencies. After Brexit our borders will be much more solid and we will have more security ".
