US Immigration Clearance Planned for UK Airports

It’s been announced that the US and British governments are in the advanced stages of agreeing to station US immigration and customs officers at Heathrow and Manchester airport to handle clearance on their side of the pond, so when you arrive in the States you’re good to go, similar to going through pre clearance currently in Canada or Ireland. The pre clearance should be up and running within two years. Not sure how short those lines will be though…7 million people a year fly from Heathrow to the US.

The US government is also looking at pre clearance in Spain, Holland and Sweden.
