UKBA and under 18s
5 May 2010

By law, Immigration officers are required to have due regard to the safeguard and welfare of all children and young people.

For all under 18s, officers are therefore required to check the documentation presented and ensure that arrangements have been made to meet the passenger.

It would be helpful if all arriving students under the age of 18 could be provided with contact details for the person / people meeting them on arrival. This will ensure our checks are conducted quickly and should lead to fewer delays.
