Expansion of UK Registered Traveller service
The Home Office announced on 25 January 2016 that it has expanded its Registered Traveller Service to Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan. The scheme, which currently has 40,000 members, is now open to Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore and the US. The purpose of the scheme is to enable those who travel frequently to benefit from an improved traveller experience.
If you are interested in applying for the Registered Traveller scheme then we will be delighted to help you complete your online application form correctly.
If the application is successful then UK border force officers effectively undertake security checks and individuals are then provisionally accepted onto the scheme. Membership would then be completed the next time that they visit the UK.
The benefit of the scheme is that once a Registered Traveller, the traveller is then eligible to use passport E-gates and UK/EU controls at Heathrow and other participating airports.
