Arriving in UK- Border Patrol Question

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey,

Not sure where to post this question, so figured this might work:

Wife (US) and I (British) are visiting the UK for Christmas this year. When we arrive at the UK Border Patrol, do we travel together in the UK/EU citizenship line, or do we separate- with me going through the UK/EU line and she going through Visitor's line?

Thanks in advance!

My personal experience from a few years ago, is if you are traveling together they will let you go together without a problem.

Assuming you are travelling on a British passport, you will all be able to go through the UK Nationals line. This is how it worked for us.
