Dear Sir or Madam,
I am trying to find information on the laws and processes relating to landing cards for visitors arriving into the UK.
It is my understanding that, under the 1971 Immigration Act, these forms are "in such form as the Secretary of State may direct".
However I cannot find any further detail as to what the current requirements are.
I would expect that as well as any Statutory Instrument(s) or equivalents, there will have also been explanation forms for visitors, policy documents and training manuals for immigration officials, etc. I am also interested in what changes to all of these have been made since 1971.
At this point I am primarily seeking assistance in relation to discovering what information exists, rather than requesting copies of such documents now. However where information is already publicly available I would also appreciate you pointing me to it.
For clarity, I am interested in all information relating to UK landing forms: what data is required, in what format, etc. and how the requirements and/or the forms have changed since 1971.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
