From The Times

 

 

 

"About 16 million visitors and migrants arriving at airports and ports across Britain will no longer be required to fill in the card under Home Office plans released quietly at the weekend. The move is designed to save £3.6 million a year and speed people through passport controls.

 

The paper landing card, which has been used for almost 50 years, is set to be scrapped on October 1 as part of the government’s “digital transformation” of border controls. It means that non-EU passengers will no longer have to reveal where they are staying in Britain, or for how long — details also excluded from information they supply before arrival."

 

 

 

Let's hope that we do that too - and the stupid departure cards as well.
