BEFORE DEPARTING THE UK

Drivers must not go through UK border control or board transport to the UK if they suspect someone is hiding in the vehicle they’re driving.

You should contact the police in the country you’re in or speak to border control at the port where they plan to board.

You can also contact the Border Force at the port where you plan to arrive.

AFTER ARRIVING IN THE UK

You shouldn’t approach anyone hiding in a vehicle. You should stay in the cab of your lorry and contact the local police.

They will take your details and your company’s details and tell the Border Force about the clandestine entrants.

You and your company may get letters from the clandestine entrant civil penalty team, which is part of the Border Force, asking for information about the security system in place on that day.
