As of Friday, non-EU citizens living in the UK will not be able to use their identity cards to enter British border posts. At the same time, MTI writes that EU citizens legally established in Great Britain can enter with an identity card for at least four years.
The UK actually left the EU on January 31 last year, but EU citizens settled legally and customarily in the country until the end of 2020, following the end of the 11-month transition period following the expiration of British EU membership (Brexit) so that they can retain all their rights. However, they must apply for an indefinite residence permit, a status established in the name of official law.
As per the amendment to the rules issued by the UK Home Office in May, it was confirmed before the deadline on Friday that those who have already obtained or applied for this status but are waiting for admission can enter the UK with the document at least until December 31, 2025.
According to the latest summary of the portfolio
As of August 31, 6,159,800 citizens of 27 EU member states residing in Great Britain had applied for the installation, and 5,709,200 applications had been decided.
The UK Home Office rejected only 3 per cent of applications examined by the end of last month.
As of June 30, according to a country-wise data series, Poles and Romanians topped the list with 1,107,060 and 1,082,260 applications, respectively.
As of June 30, according to Home Ministry figures
155,490 Hungarian citizens applied for a permanent residence permit in Great Britain.
EU citizens are not regular residents of the UK, so those unable to obtain established status were able to use their country-issued identity card to enter the UK until Thursday.
