To ask Her Majesty's Government why the declaration form for international travel from England does not allow a British citizen to provide an overseas address.
28 April 2021
The travel declaration form is designed for the passenger to state who they are and why they are departing England to travel overseas. The details on the form including the address are not captured or recorded centrally. If a police officer has a reasonable belief that a passenger is travelling without a reasonable excuse, a separate process of issuing a Fixed Penalty Notice is commenced which includes recording the residential address of the passenger for enforcement purposes.
We will amend the way the address is requested on the form to make it easier to complete for passengers with non-UK addresses.
