UK ARRIVAL GUIDE | It pays to be organised and in a fast-paced city like London, it’s a survival necessity. Find out more about what to do once you touch down in the famous city .
No matter where you land in the UK, you will go through passport control:
- Fill out a landing card –you’ll need the address of where you’re staying when you arrive in the UK
- Have your passport ready. Make sure it expires at least six months after your planned departure from the UK and that it has at least two blank pages in it
- Have bank statements and supporting documentation necessary for your visit.
The key for this is to be prepared and even though you may be tired, always be polite and friendly. Visitors are sometimes asked questions concerning their destination, purpose of travel and expected departure. Always bring a copy of your travel plans and important numbers.
