Frequent travellers know only too well the agony of standing in a long and tediously slow-moving queue to clear customs and immigration when you land at Heathrow. You’re exhausted after flying for hours only to shuffle along with all the other tired individuals, wishing you could speed up the process. For some the long wait may be over.
Australian passport holders can pre-register to fast track through UK border controls. If you’ve visited the UK at least 4 times in the last 2 years, you can apply for Registered Traveller membership, to get through UK borders faster.
There is a cost which most would say is well worth it, to enable you to use the UK and EU fast entry lanes and e-passport gates and you won’t need to fill in a landing card.
Registered Traveller Service applies to entry at Birmingham, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Gatwick, Glasgow, Heathrow, London City, Luton, Manchester and Stansted Airports, as well as Eurostar terminals at Brussels, Lille and Paris. Cost GBP70
