Registered traveller scheme

Helping you through border control as quickly as possible...

Fully enrolled Registered Traveller members with a biometric chipped passport can now benefit from using the ePassport gates and enter via UK Border Force's dedicated Registered Traveller lanes at Gatwick.

The service is open to applicants aged 18 and above, from the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Japan, who are either visiting the UK in one of the eligible visitor categories or hold Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR), Tier 1 (Investor, Entrepreneur and Exceptional Talent/Promise) or Tier 2 (Skilled workers) leave and have travelled to the UK four times or more in the last twelve months. 

It costs £70 to apply to use the service for one year. If your application is unsuccessful you’ll get £50 back.
