Revenue: ‘No major increase in border controls post-Brexit’

Random checks, cameras and electronics could all be part of Ireland’s future border defences post-Brexit.

Irish officials have visited border checkpoints in Austria, Norway and Sweden to investigate how best to maintain security, while allowing north/south traffic to flow as freely as possible.

Today’s Irish Independent reports that Ireland has had encouraging contacts with the European Commission about what procedures could be put in place.

Revenue sources say random mobile checks would have to be carried out, but it doesn’t expect a big increase in enforcement staff to patrol the border.
