We will always ensure we have the resources and workforce we need to keep the border secure. Operational units across the Home Office actively monitor workflows to ensure sufficient resources are in place to meet demand.

Border Force does not publish port specific information as this may enable a picture of the current work of the Home Office and identify any strength or weakness, thereby compromising the integrity of immigration controls and the planned operational security work being developed.
