The Public Commercial Services Union’s National Executive Committee has announced strike action affecting UK Border Force from 01st until 7 am on 02 February 2023. The strike will impact all international arrivals at all UK air and maritime ports.

As such, please anticipate longer wait times at border control. The Border Force has worked closely with airports to ensure adequate staff to carry out passport checks and support the processing of travellers through control points as quickly and efficiently as possible. Please ensure you have all your documents ready for inspection before arriving at the border.

Please be patient and respect officers working to secure the UK border and support passengers during strike action.
