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 вЂњdigital visasвЂќ, 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 вЂњdigital visasвЂќ will help to accurately count the number of people who enter and leave the country.
вЂњA 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,вЂќ 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.
