So far no one has mentioned an end to the common travel area between Ireland and the UK.

How does that work if Luis is refused a visa for the U.K but then exercises his right to travel to IE?

  • Does IE refuse him? Can't.

  • Does U.K do immigration checks on suspiciously olive or Slavic people at NI/mainland U.K.  border? Politically problematic for unionists - though maybe their racism will get the better of them.

Frankly, I never thought of this. Is the common travel area dead then?

Only if you travel Ryanair, in which case you may wish to be dead in any case...
