Immigration has been one of the major topics covered in the past general election. Undoubtedly UKIP has had a significant influence in 'Theresa May's vow to "cut immigration to tens of thousands", but why would she do that? Free movement of people has major advantages, and Brexit does not necessarily mean closing borders; that would be a misinterpretation of the referendum's cause and result. The UK opted-out of participating in the Schengen Agreement, but still Europeans can freely travel...

It seems more sensible to either have soft borders, or no reinforced borders at all, as UK businesses will be affected, particularly between The Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. However a big selling point that drove people to vote out was the reinforcement of the UK borders, so where are we left? With some borders being reinforced and some not?

I think the idea of an electronic visa waiver scheme, similar to the US electronic system which fast-tracks visitors from certain countries, would be the best option for Britain post-Brexit, both for EU citizens entering the UK and UK citizens entering EU states. This would  let citizens visit for up to 6 months for tourism, business, study or medical treatment without needing a visa.
