British passport holders must now have their travel documents inspected and stamped.

Just when we all thought the queuing in Dover and Folkestone this weekend was a temporary inconvenience that will soon be sorted out.

The next steps, which are due to be introduced in May 2023, will involve more red tape. Passport stamping will end. Every traveller must be fingerprinted and provide a facial biometric instead.

The EU will introduce an “entry exit system” (EES) that will record the movements of non-EU visitors.

British travellers are restricted to 90 days stay in any 180 days, but checks currently depend on checking passport stamps and are haphazard.
