Response to the Government's consultation on landing cards

UK Border

 

Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye said:

“We welcome the Home Office’s proposal to remove landing cards for non-EEA passengers. The change will streamline the border experience for millions of Heathrow passengers – showing them that Britain is open for business – whilst using 21st century biometric technology to keep Britain’s borders secure. We will continue to invest in our passengers’ overall experience at Heathrow and work alongside Government to ensure that the UK’s border is one of the most secure and welcoming in the world.”
