To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what guidance the Government has issued to airline operators on the evidence EU citizens will be required to provide before boarding flights to the UK from (a) the EU and (b) other countries after the end of the transition period.
24 February 2020
Immediately after the end of free movement, carriers will not be required to ask EU citizens for evidence of EU Settlement Scheme status before they board flights and ferries to the UK.
As part our future plans for strengthening border security, there may be changes to the checks carriers are required to undertake to ensure their passengers have the appropriate permission to travel to the UK. This could include checks for EU Settlement Status. We will work with carriers to develop the detailed policy and system requirements, and ensure there is appropriate guidance in place before any such changes are made.
