ULEZ expansion - 29 August 2023

London's Ultra Low Emission Zone, or ULEZ, is expanding to encompass all of Greater London, including Heathrow Airport, from the 29 August 2023.


The initiative, implemented by Transport for London (TfL), is aimed at reducing air pollution in London, therefore all vehicles entering the airport must meet certain emissions standards in order to avoid paying a daily charge.


The daily charge for non-compliant vehicles is £12.50 for most vehicles, including cars, vans, and motorcycles.


The charge will be in addition to any other fees or charges associated with entering the airport. The charge only applies when a vehicle is driven within the ULEZ zone, and does not apply to stationary vehicles including when cars are parked at Heathrow.


Please note, if you have booked Meet & Greet or Valet Parking with a non-compliant vehicle, and have selected a different exit terminal to your entry terminal, you will be liable for payment of a ULEZ charge to transfer your vehicle to another terminal.

The regulation also requires all existing passholders, such as those who held an airside pass prior to 1 January 2022 and have not needed a renewal, to have an Accreditation Check by 1 July 2024

Use the links below to find out more information on the process of using HMRC employment history data as an alternative to the standard approach of employment referencing.

Due to ramp up and to assist stakeholder operations, we have created a process which eliminates the 12-month referencing requirement for any applicant who has acquired a valid and granted Accreditation Check.

This Temporary Employment (AC) Security interview should only be used if the Applicant has acquired a granted Accreditation Check within the last twelve months.
