The Common Travel Area

The United Kingdom, Northern Ireland, Ireland and other adjacent territories in the United Kingdom, maintains a common travel area, somewhat akin to the Schengen Area on continental Europe. Visitors who have been checked through immigration in e.g. England wouldn't normally have to go through immigration procedures when continuing a journey in Ireland etc. The foundations of this agreement has been somewhat watered out since Ireland initiated spot checks at it's borders some years back.
