UK Border Control

Please see our advices for your travel to UK.

This summer break, UK border control at sea and air ports can get very busy due to the time it takes to process the extra holidaymakers. You can keep your border control queuing to a minimum when you return by:

  • using the ePassport gates
  • preparing your passport by making sure it in close to hand and on the photo page
  • removing all hats and sunglasses in advance

These steps can cut your wait down considerably. For further information of border control and the use of ePassport gates, please visit:
