Home Office Engagement Events

We are introducing Universal Permission to Travel (UPT) Response Messages to sGAR from January 2024, these messages will confirm whether an individual has a valid permission to travel or if you need to conduct a manual check for a visa.

We would like to invite you to register for one of our engagement events for pilots, operators and agents who send passenger information to the Home Office through the sGAR web service.

The events are intended to provide further support and clarity regarding the introduction of response messages, as well as an opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
