From October 1, 2021, only one of these will let the bearer into the UK, according to the British government Keystone
Swiss citizens will need a passport to enter the United Kingdom from October 1, 2021 – identity cards will no longer be accepted. This is according to an updated post-Brexit Border Operating Model published by the British government on Thursday.
The new regulation also applies to all EU countries and Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein.
These changes would “strengthen the security of our border”, the British government said in its 263-page guide for businesses and passengers crossing the border after the Brexit transition ends on December 31.
The British government had previously said in travel advice that it “may stop accepting” ID cards after 2020 but hadn’t fixed a date.
However, Swiss citizens who begin living in the UK before December 31, 2020, and have status under the EU Settlement Scheme will be able to use their Swiss ID cards to enter the UK until at least December 31, 2025.
