As of Friday, EU citizens not living in the UK will not be able to use their identity cards to enter British border posts. However, EU citizens legally established in the UK can enter the country with an identity card for at least four years.
The UK Home Office said at a conference on Friday that ID cards were among the most experienced identification documents by the British Border Police in experience.
According to the portfolio, nearly half of the false identity documents found last year at British border checkpoints were in the European Union and the European Economic Area and Switzerland.
The change to the rule, which abolishes the use of identity cards to enter the UK from Friday, applies equally to citizens of these groups.
As per the resolution of the British Home Office on Friday
Identity cards can be easily misused by those who want to enter the UK illegally.
The British Home Office said in a statement that if the British Border Police failed to accept the identification documents from Friday, the British government would allow organized crime groups and illegal immigrants to use the documents to prevent illegal entry.
According to the ministry, there are still some who do not have biometrics, so identity cards are well known as insecure as travel documents.
However, ID cards make it harder to verify criminals’ databases than passports.
Although new security standards for identity cards have already been introduced in the EU, cards that do not meet these standards will still be in circulation for five to ten years.
And these documents are more fake than passports

At the same time, the portfolio confirms that EU citizens legally established in the UK will be able to use their identity cards until at least 2025, as the British government is committed to protecting the rights of EU citizens living in the UK.
