The Public and Commercial Services union has called a 24-hour strike beginning on the evening of Wednesday 29 June until the evening of Thursday 30 June and the strike will affect UK Border Agency staff in the UK.

People travelling into the UK may experience delays at border control. The impact of the strike will be different at individual ports, airports and international rail terminals.

UKBA have put contingency plans in place and say they will work hard to keep delays to a minimum.
Their advice to passengers arriving in the UK on 30 June is;:
 Have travel documents, including passports, available and taken out of any wallets
 Use automatic e-Passport gates (where available).

In-country services, including enforcement and public enquiry offices, will be aiming to provide a business-as-usual service. However, premium customers should be aware that their cases may not be concluded on the day.
