Passport checks on leaving UK to be introduced at Eurotunnel and Ferry Ports

With effect from 8 April 2015 those leaving the UK by Eurotunnel and Ferry will have their passports scanned and their information sent to the Home Office. To help reduce delays at the exit checks Eurotunnel will be introducing Advance Passenger Information (API) technology - same as obtains at UK airports and the Ferry Ports are expected to follow suit later.
