The Isle of Man wants the island to be included in the UK’s new electronic border security system known as ‘e-border’.
The e-border system has been designed to help the UK to identify illegal immigrants, criminals and terrorists by monitoring everyone exiting or entering the country.
Commenting on the issue, chief minister Tony Brown said, “The Isle of Man Government's view is that to maintain current travel arrangements between the Island and the UK, we need to be on the inside of the e-border and should take the necessary steps to allow that to happen."
If the Isle of Man is included in the UK’s e-border, the carriers will not have to provide advance information on all passengers traveling between the island and the UK.
The Council of Ministers has already approved the idea in priniciple that the island should be included in the UK’s e-border. But, the issue is yet to seek approval from Tynwald.
