Briefing note: Nationality and Borders Bill – Electronic Travel Authorisation

Clause 71 of the Nationality and Borders bill (as introduced to the House of Lords) amends the Immigration Act 1971 to introduce Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA). This provides for a pre-entry clearance system, which requires anyone who does not need a visa, entry clearance or other specified immigration status, to obtain authorisation before travelling to the UK. This includes on journeys within the Common Travel Area (CTA).

CAJ has prepared a briefing note on the potential impact of putting this system in place.
