Strenghtening the Common Travel Area
A few years’ on from the withdrawal of UK government proposals to increase immigration controls between the Republic of Ireland and the UK, and as the Republic pilots a new visa waiver programme for UK visa holders travelling from Northern Ireland to the South, Law Centre (NI) Immigration Adviser Anna Morvern explores the benefits of strengthening the Common Travel Area, by way of a mutually recognised visa system or a single visa system.

Law Centre (NI) is planning to host a North South Immigration Forum on this issue in spring 2012. For further information, please contact Geraldine Scullion, Policy Officer at Law Centre (NI).
