EU, EEA and Swiss citizens will no longer be able to use an ID card to enter the UK unless they are exempt.

10th September 2021

EU, EEA and Swiss citizens will no longer be able to use an ID card to enter the UK unless they are exempt.

Only the following EU, EEA, and Swiss citizens will be exempt from this change:
✓ who have received settled or pre-settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS)
✓ who have made an application to the EUSS but have not yet received a decision on their application
✓ have an EU Settlement Scheme family permit
✓ who are an S2 Healthcare Visitor
✓ with a frontier worker permit
✓ who are Swiss nationals and have a Swiss Service Provider from Switzerland visa

This change will come into effect from 1 October 2021.
• Between now and then, travellers using ID cards to enter the UK may be reminded that they will no longer be able to use them in future.
• We encourage all EU, EEA and Swiss travellers to use a passport where possible. This allows them to use e-Gates; the quickest and most efficient method of crossing the border.
