Registered Traveller Service Allows Fast Entry to UK

19 June 2015

In June 2015, UK Visas and Immigration announced the introduction of Registered Traveller Scheme which allows its members to get through the UK border control faster. More specifically, registered travellers will be able to use the ePassport gates if they have a biometric passport. In addition, members will benefit from using the fast entry lanes at Heathrow, Gatwick, London City, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester and Stansted airports, and Brussels, Lille and Paris Eurostar terminals  without the need to fill a landing card or be interviewed at port.

You can apply to be a Registered Traveller member if you are a national of Australia, New Zealand, the USA, Canada or Japan; are over 18 years of age; have visited the UK four times or more in the previous one year and have been granted one of the following types of leave to enter the UK:

  • Indefinite leave to remain;
  • Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) visa excluding dependants;
  • Tier 1 (Investor) visa excluding dependants;
  • Tier 2 visa – all categories excluding dependants;
  • General Visitor (tourist);
  • Business Visitor;
  • Entertainer Visitor;
  • Sports Visitor; or
  • Parents of Children at School in the UK.

The membership fee for Registered Travel Service is £70 to apply for 12 months, and if your application is unsuccessful, you will get a £50 refund.
