Commuting across the border

Hundreds of people cross the border regularly for all types of reasons including visiting, living and working between the jurisdictions, studying etc.

A frontier worker is defined as someone who lives on one side of the border but who commutes daily or weekly to their place of work on the other side of the border.

The Border People website acts as a ‘one-stop shop’ for people who commute across the border in detailing entitlements, rights etc. for these people in their unique status on the island of Ireland.

Information relevant to those who commute across the border is tagged by category (health, taxation etc.), life event (studying, moving etc.), target group (frontier workers, parents etc.) - making the process of finding information as easy as possible.

You can browse through all the information records on this site relating to both jurisdictions using the button below.

Alternatively if you have a specific query, you can use the search box below - refining you search by theme (commute, work, live, study) as applicable to your situation.
