Thank you for contacting me about immigration, visas and the UK Border as the Coronavirus outbreak continues.
I would like to assure you that Ministers in the Home Office and across Government are working hard to ensure that the UK immigration and border system can continue to function effectively during the current outbreak.
I know that many constituents have raised the issue of checks at UK airports for citizens from countries also tackling the current Coronavirus outbreak. I have raised this issue with the Home Office and Ministers have confirmed that the procedures at the border strictly follow the very latest public health guidance and this has been the case from the beginning of the outbreak. I believe strongly in the need to follow the science and the guidance is clear that at this moment in time measures such as temperature checks at airports are not effective.
