Britain to launch digital visas




People who will be coming to the UK without a visa or immigration status will have to apply for an electronic entry permit





The UK is going to launch a system of “digital visas”, which will automatically determine the right of a tourist to enter the country.

This is reported by The Guardian with reference to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the country.

The British authorities expect that “digital visas” will help to accurately count the number of people who enter and leave the country.

“A fully digital border will make it possible to more accurately count people entering and leaving the country, which will strengthen control over who comes to the UK,” said the head of the British Home Office, Priti Patel.

According to her, people who will come to the UK without a visa or immigration status will have to apply for an electronic entry permit.

The decision on digital visas was made against the background of data that the current estimates of immigration differ significantly from the real picture.

The UK Home Office wants to fully digitalize entry to the country by the end of 2025.
