2025 UK Border Strategy Public Consultation

This consultation seeks the views and expertise of stakeholders to help develop the 2025 UK Border Strategy and ensure that the Government and industry are able to work in partnership together to deliver a world class border.

The consultation closes at 11:55pm on 28 August 2020.

The government’s ambition is to create the world’s most effective border by 2025, to ensure the UK becomes an even more attractive place to travel to and do business with. It will ensure the UK is better protected against crime, terrorism and environmental and biosecurity threats.

We would welcome responses from stakeholders with an interest in the border including:

the border industry and its representative bodies
logistics firms and those who support others to move goods through cross-border supply chains
UK or international businesses who trade across the UK border or who are considering doing so
organisations who depend upon the movement of goods or people across the UK border
groups representing commercial and leisure travellers, experts on border processes, procedures and technology.

We are not seeking views from individual commercial or leisure travellers who move across the border, but welcome responses from groups representing them.

This consultation invites responses from stakeholders in all regions of the UK and we will continue to work with the Devolved Administrations to create a border that is fit for the future and benefits all the nations of the UK.

We are not seeking views on the Border Operating Model or arrangements for the border at the end of the transition period, this consultation is focussed on the long-term ambition for the UK’s border.
