ID Centre update - changes to application process
The new ID Gateway online application system is now live as part of our on-going transformation of Heathrow. The new online procedure is where you now submit all of your ID applications and will ensure our compliance and provide you with an improved customer experience.
As an authorised signatory, you should have received your ID Gateway log in. This lets you go online to complete your applications for full ID passes, landside ID passes, re-issue ID passes, unparking ID passes, reporting of lost or stolen ID passes and temporary ID passes.
If you have received your log in details please use the following link to log into ID Gateway and commence your applications: idgateway.co.uk
Not received your log-in?
If you have not yet received your log in details or you are having challenges logging in please contact:firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are a passholder already or a new applicant please contact your Authorised Signatory for support.
Please call 020 8757 0990 or email email@example.com
Template letters for you to use
We have prepared these templates based on our authorised signatory training programme. They meet most, if not all of the circumstances you are likely to meet.
If you wish to vary the content, please ensure that you do not amend the questions the template letters pose to each recipient. These are set out in the direction that we have to ask you to follow.
Please feel free to change certain issues of style or tone and remember that you should use your organisation's letterhead when preparing the letters. All the templates are in Microsoft Word format so they can easily be edited.
