Tips for Travelers

Once your travel plans are confirmed, check the expiration date of your

passport. It's also a good idea to make photocopies of the data page; leave one copy

with someone at home and keep another with you, separated from your passport.

If you lose your passport, promptly call the nearest embassy or consulate and

the local police; having a copy of the data page can speed replacement. You need

only a valid passport to enter Great Britain for stays of up to 90 days.

When shopping, keep receipts for all of your purchases. Upon reentering the

country, be ready to show customs officials what you've bought. If you feel a duty

is incorrect, appeal the assessment. If you object to the way your clearance was

handled, get the inspector's badge number.

In either case, first ask to see a supervisor, then write to the port director at the

address listed on your receipt. Send a copy of the receipt and other appropriate

documentation. If you still don't get satisfaction you can take your case to customs
