Immigration officers are stationed at every point of entry
into the United Kingdom to check and monitor people
who are arriving and leaving. Officers check the landing
cards that are required for non-British and non-
European passengers, and establish the purpose of
their visit and the length of stay.
If everything is in order officers then allow entry to the country, check and endorse passports and any documents relating to working in this country, and ensure that any other forms that may be required are completed.
If officers are not satisfied that passengers qualify for entry, they interview them for more information, arrange for them to be sent back to their point of departure if they are illegal immigrants, or arrange for them to be sent to a holding area if they claim political asylum.
The work also involves organising surveillance and carrying out intelligence-based activities. Officers may also have to undertake immigration visits to identify people who have no authority to remain in the UK.
