UK Ireland signed MOU to facilitate Indians
In a bid to reinforce the Common Travel Area, the home secretary signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Ireland. The British-Irish Visa Scheme will allow Indian and Chinese tourists to transit to Ireland and the UK on a single tourist visa.

Sources said that the British-Irish Visa Scheme will permit the two nations to share information and exchange data that can be utilized to decide immigration decisions. The scheme is a part of a program that is aimed at reinforcing the borders of both countries. Other plans include working on visa regimes and processes, easing pre-entry and entry checks and sharing watch-list data and passenger information.

Reportedly the scheme will start in China by October ending, thereafter in India. India and China are the major markets for Ireland and UK tourism. It is expected that over 10,000 tourists will make use of this scheme.

The home secretary, Theresa May, said it is very happy to sign MOU that will facilitate travelers to visit the UK and Ireland, at the same time reinforcing Common Travel Area borders.
