Ireland's Flags - 26 Counties became the Irish Free State in 1922, and the 6 north-eastern Counties, Northern Ireland remained part of  Britain. No laws were passed requiring a passport for travel across the new border, this is referred to by both governments as "The Common Travel Area". British and Irish citizens may live and work freely in each other's countries. This is possible because the nationality laws of the two countries do not consider citizens of the other country to be 'Aliens'. Citizens of Ireland and the UK may vote in general elections of either or both countries. The Border is not officially marked.
