No Change for UK Passport Holders at Dublin Airport Immigration If UK Leaves EU Without a Deal

The Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service, which operates immigration at Dublin Airport, has confirmed that UK passport holders will continue to be processed through the EU channel if the UK leaves the EU without a deal. The existing EU channel will be re-designated as an EU/UK channel, meaning that there will be no real change at Irish immigration for UK passport holders.
