Passport Control

Your first step after arriving at Bristol Airport is to come through UK border control. If possible, we recommend that you use the ePassport gates which will speed up your journey through the border.

e-passport gates

Anyone that’s over 12 years old and has a chipped passport from a supported country can use the e-passport gates. This service offers a secure, self-service alternative to conventional border controls. To assist us getting you though as quickly as possible please remove passports and ID cards from wallets or passport holders before presentation to the officer/using the eGates.

Passports and travel documents

Always produce a valid passport or travel document for yourself and any child you are travelling with. Find out more on the government website

Travelling as a family? 

Please stick together and go directly to passport control, as families can often receive their ID checks as a group.

Bringing goods into the UK

Passengers should be aware that certain goods may be prohibited or restricted on entry to the UK. For full information check out the UK government’s advice

We endeavour to provide both a warm welcome to visitors to the South West and a convenient return home for local passengers after a trip away. However, the UK Border Force manages all border control points, enforcing immigration and customs regulations, and the safety and security of the UK must, understandably, be its top priority.
