UK Border Force Exit Checks

Dear customers,

We would like to inform you that the UK government is introducing Exit Checks at all ports and airports from Wednesday 8th April 2015. The government requires Eurotunnel to gather information on the identity of every person leaving the country via the Channel Tunnel and pass this information to the UK Border Force.

We have been working closely with the Authorities to comply with this new regulation and training new agents to make the process fast and efficient so that traffic remains fluid on our Folkestone terminal at all times.

The trials conducted to date have proved to be successful and in order to avoid unnecessary delays for your drivers, could you please remind them that they must carry a valid passport or ID card with them at all times when on the terminal and present it opened at the relevant page when requested by the agents.

The Exit Checks will take place at the frontier post after Check-in. This information will also be communicated to your drivers when they arrive at the UK terminal.

Thank you for your understanding.

Best regards,
Freight Commercial Team
