Consultation description

New powers to allow the Home Office to operate a civil penalty were introduced in the Immigration Act 2016. A penalty may be imposed on a carrier or airport operator if they fail to take all reasonable steps to ensure that passengers arriving in the UK are correctly directed through a secure channel to border control for appropriate checks to be completed.

This consultation seeks views on the content of 2 codes of practice which will support carriers and airport operators in taking all reasonable to steps to do this and sets out a clear charging matrix for the penalty where a misdirection occurs.
