EXPLANATORY NOTE

This Order, revoking and replacing the Immigration (Landing and Embarkation Cards) Order 1972, extends the categories of persons required to produce landing or embarkation cards when disembarking or embarking in the United Kingdom. While under the previous Order cards were required from aliens only, Article 4 of the new Order makes the requirement general, except for persons travelling on United Kingdom passports who are partial, i.e. who have under section 2 of the Immigration Act 1971 the right of abode in the United Kingdom. Like the previous Order, this Order does not extend to persons travelling within the common travel area (the United Kingdom, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man and the Republic of Ireland) except in the case of a person landing form an aircraft coming from the Republic of Ireland who began his journey outside the common travel area and was not given leave to land in the Republic. (Travellers within the common travel area may however be required to produce cards under the Prevention of Terrorism (Supplemental Temporary Provisions) Order 1974 (S.I. 1974/1975) and the Prevention of Terrorism (Supplemental Temporary Provisions) (Northern Ireland) Order 1974 (S.I. 1974/2038).)
