Since the 1st April 2015, all UK ports and airports are required by the UK government to carry out Exit Checks to collect the passport or identity card details from every person leaving the country, at their point of departure, and pass this information to UK Border Force.
To speed up your journey through our Folkestone terminal, you must supply your passenger information to us before you travel, using our Advance Passenger Information (API) system. If you do not supply your passenger information in advance of travelling, you may be stopped at check-in and asked to add your API to your booking before continuing on your journey.
Please note we only require your API information for the Folkestone to Calais part of your journey. We do not require API information for the Calais to Folkestone part of a return trip, or trips that are Calais to Folkestone only.
