In the event the UK leaves the EU without a deal, there will be no practical changes to the UK’s approach to immigration on journeys within the CTA. As now there will be no routine immigration controls on journeys from within the CTA to the UK; with no immigration controls whatsoever on the Northern Ireland – Ireland land border.

Further information is set out in the UK Government publication: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/travelling-in-the-common-travel-area-if-theres-no-brexit-deal/travelling-within-the-common-travel-area-and-the-associated-rights-of-british-and-irish-citizens-if-there-is-no-brexit-deal
