We aim to make your journey into Wales as smooth and welcoming as possible, here are a few handy tips to bear in mind on arrival to Cardiff Airport. Please note that UK Border Force manages all border control points and enforce customs and immigration regulations, with safety and security as the number one priority.
Your passport or identity card will be checked at passport control on arrival to the UK: passports must be valid for the entirety of your stay. You may also need a visa to travel through the UK.
Please have your passport ready on the photo page before arriving at the desk, and remove any hat or sunglasses you are wearing. If travelling as a family, please stick as a group and proceed to passport control, as families can often receive their ID checks together.
On arrival into the UK, you can use the eGates if:
Non EU/EEA Passport Holders
Passengers who do not have a British, EU or EEA (European Economic Area) passport must complete a landing card prior to passing through passport control. Landing cards are provided by the airline during the flight. Please have this ready along with your passport on arrival.
Registered Traveller members can pass through the UK border without filling in a landing card, and may queue in the shortest lane, however as a Registered Traveller you must still carry your visa/ biometric residence permit if you have one. For more information and eligibility for Registered Travellers can be found at https://www.gov.uk/registered-traveller
What can you bring with you?
This depends on where you are travelling from, however in general, you must declare to customs:
Anything over your duty-free allowance
Banned or restricted goods in the UK, e.g. Meat and dairy products from outside the EU
More than €10,000 in cash, if arriving from outside the EU
Goods that you plan to sell
Please note that you and your baggage may be checked for anything you must declare.
