Since yesterday, 1 October 2021, European citizens entering the UK can no longer show their national ID at customs controls but need a passport.
Effects of the envisaged measures for Brexit, the change was announced more than a year ago and affects citizens of the European Economic Area and Switzerland, who are equated with foreign travelers from elsewhere in the world.
The ID card, if you are based in England to work or study, can be used until 2025 if you are enrolled in the EU Settlement Scheme set up by the government to ensure residents have access to rights acquired before they divorce with Europe.
Interior Minister , Priti Patel, stated that identity cards are among the simplest documents to be forged, and for this reason also, it is necessary to protect oneself from those trying to enter the country illegally.
