They will continue to be able to enter and reside in the UK and to enjoy their existing rights as provided for by the long-standing Common Travel Area (CTA) arrangements.</p><p>The UK Government has been clear since the EU Exit Referendum that these rights will be protected. The Home Secretary reaffirmed during the second reading of the Immigration and Social Security Coordination Bill that the rights of Irish citizens to enter and remain in the UK are protected. This position has been set out in various Government publications including Northern Ireland-Ireland Position paper (August 2017) and The UK’s future skills-based immigration system White Paper (December 2018). Commu-nications for EEA nationals on what action needs to be taken after the UK has left the EU include specific messages confirming that Irish citizens are not required to take action to protect their status or entitlements.</p>
