Are there any other ways to make my journey easier?

Clearing Immigration (after arriving at Heathrow and Gatwick airports) can be faster if you are a national of Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand or the USA and regularly fly in to Heathrow or Gatwick airports.

You will need to apply to join the Registered Traveller Service, please follow this link: https://www.gov.uk/registered-traveller.

Once you are registered you will:

  • Be able to use ePassport gates (if you have a biometric passport)
  • Be able to use UK/EU channel (at Heathrow airport) or the special Registered Traveller lane (at Gatwick airport)
  • Not need to fill in a landing card.
