The Mrs. arrived in this evening and had the same thing. Passport check on the tarmac and then again at passport control.

What's the reason for it?

Stopping illegals entering the country ? Human trafficking? Countless reasons and probably good reasons. Why do we have to question it ?

Probably because you are shown this ring of steel yet you have people seeking asylum where they have passed through 20 odd safe countries getting here and are accepted.

General immigration/asylum discussion is off-topic for this forum. Only the actual airport controls themselves are Aviation related

I've seen the odd jetway ID check over here at Oslo Airport. It looks like they do it whenever there's a couple of people on the inbound flight that they want to check before they even get to the border post.

In the rare occasions I've seen it, they check everyone's ID on exit. I which I guess they need to do in order to find the people they're after.

Because one passport check point if done properly should be enough ?

From the customers view, there are many poorly implemented elements in Dubin airport that give an impression of poor service, so two such checks is on the face of it an unnecessary inconvience. They are certainly not above discussion or question surely ? Many aspects of Dublin airport are a disgrace.

Curiosity? Why do we have to talk about anything?

Deal or no deal affects trade, what has the UK leaving the EU got to do with passport checks for people arriving in Dublin? You need to show a passport when arriving from everywhere except the UK, that isn't going to change after Brexit.

There’s a load of illegals coming in through Italy and Spain, losing their documents on the way to GNIB and claiming asylum, once they’re at GNIB they have to be processed because they’ve no documents, if they’re stopped just at the inbound doors they can be sent back on the next flight available. There was 20 caught on one flight alone the other day and 4 on another flight.

Also a lot of “asylum “ seekers coming in here from Albania- likes of the Belgrade flights would surely be prime targets.
Perhaps immigration checks should be done at every flight door as people disembark to nip this carry on in the bud. Maybe slightly more inconvenient but Ireland needs to take a much harder line

I think its wonderful that targeted intelligence-driven checks can be shown working well at DUB . Every time we have suggested them on the main passport thread as a replacement for the main channels they are derided.

Airlines get heavily fined depending on circumstances and usually do whatever required to stop such fines. Its good to see this happening and ideally extra staff should be available for this.
