United Kingdom to Expand ePassport Gate Program
Commencing June 1, 2019, the United Kingdom will expand the ePassport Gate program to include citizens of the United States, Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, and South Korea. Individuals using ePassport gates are not required to complete or present a landing card at entry. Citizens of the United Kingdom and European Economic Area (EEA) countries already have access to the ePassport gates. The goal of this program is to improve the passenger experience at entry by significantly improving queue times while maintaining security.
Travelers from the designated countries using ePassport gates must be over age 12 and must possess a biometric passport.
Gibney will continue to monitor this program and provide updates as they become available. If you have any questions regarding this alert, please contact your designated Gibney representative, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
