Julian visits Port of Dover with EFRA Committee

April 18, 2023

Julian visited the Port of Dover with other members of the EFRA Select Committee to discuss the implementation of the EU’s new Entry/Exit System (EES) and how we are best preparing for the change.

The new biometric system will initially require anyone arriving from outside the EU, including the UK, to have their fingerprints scanned and a photograph taken. EES will replace the traditional system of manually stamping passports, attempting to shorten the process of cross-border travel, and provide more reliable data such as working out if someone has overstayed their visit.

This trip was important to gain a greater understanding of how the scheme will work and how it will be implemented in the most efficient and effective way possible. Positive discussions were had but a significant work remains.

This will require cooperation across government and with our French partners to ensure that we do not exacerbate a situation that is already fragile and to make travel as seamless and safe as possible.

Julian will continue monitor developments and press Ministers for action where needed.
