Border Force’s number one priority is to keep our borders safe and secure for all passengers. They will continue to maintain the checks needed to keep the public safe, while minimising disruption.
Border Force are working closely with all UK ports and carriers to ensure robust plans are in place to minimise any delays if strike action goes ahead, however passengers should be prepared for disruption and should check with their travel operators before travelling.
The eGates will be operating as normal and passengers who can use eGates are encouraged to do so.
