BA ARRIVAL fast track vouchers
 
At Heathrow T5, is it still required to present an arrival fast track voucher in order to use the fast track? Last time at T3 I tried using CE boarding pass but was refused.

I believe so, I was also under the impression it is only for Non-EU on LH, but having never needed one will defer to those who do.

CE pax yes but not if on an EU passport

LHR T5 arrivals


If you have an EU passport with a chip in it you can use the automatic ePassport gates.

Fast Track Immigration is available from 05:15 to 22:30 for the following non-EU passport holders:

customers travelling in First, Club World or Club Europe (plus one guest)
Executive Club Gold and Silver Members (plus one guest)
oneworld Emerald and Sapphire members (plus one guest)

Same rules for T3 as well

NO! Not at T3. You must have the invitation voucher. See the dedicated thread:

What about Iberia customers? I am trying to deduce whether showing boarding pass is enough for T5 arrival fast track because Iberia might not handed out vouchers to their passengers like Finnair. I tried to ask in Iberia forum and there is no clear reply so I have to ask in here because I know that there are more people participating in this forum than in Iberia.

Does anyone have experience about this on BA flight operated by Iberia?

You will need a voucher regardless, as everyone has mentioned.

You may or may not be offered one on the flight, more likely not if it's shorthaul. Make sure you ask for one.

It is very definitely not necessary to have a voucher at T5. It is at T3. Furthermore, there isn't really a control on EU passport holders not using the lines. Border control doesn't care. Just don't have your passport out when you go through the checkpoint. That said, it's rarely going to be faster.

On Iberia? I'm travelling on BA7058 (IB plane), I'm not sure if they have loaded on the a/c.

Can Emeralds flying in WT/+ as for a FT voucher (into T3...)

BABroadie Jun 8, 17 8:22 am

Why is it that EU passport holders or BA Gold can't take a fast track?

Can I help you Jun 8, 17 8:26 am

T5 Fast Track is for non European citizens only, not sure about T3.
