  • On 1 January 2021, the UK left the European Union. Passengers continue to be able to use Heathrow to travel from the UK to the EU. There has been some changes at customs and the process of declaring goods.

    The blue channel (previously used for arrivals from EEA countries) has closed. All passengers arriving from the EU are required to make a customs declaration by selecting the green channel (nothing to declare) or the red channel (goods to declare). 

    For more information on the customs changes, view Government advice.


    If your baggage is checked through to your final destination, that’s where you clear customs. If you’re collecting your baggage and checking in to your next flight yourself, you need to pass through customs at Heathrow.

    You’re responsible for the goods you carry through, so make sure what you take into the UK belongs to you.
