We make decisions on whether to permit EU traffic to enter the UK at the border through a number of checks using skilled people, technology and intelligence.

Border Force will continue to prioritise security at the border whilst maintain-ing the flow of legitimate travellers and will always ensure it has the neces-sary resources to keep the border secure and respond flexibly to emerging requirements through ongoing assessments of operational needs.
