We re-introduced exit checks in April 2015 to further complement our work on border security, plus support the Home Office’s wider work to deal with illegal immigration.

Passengers leaving the country on scheduled commercial air, sea and rail routes, on journeys outside the Common Travel Area, go through exit checks.
