Customs & Special Branch

The General Aviation (Flight Information, Persons on Board and Civil Penalties) Regulations 2024 (‘the 2024 regulations’)

The 2024 regulations apply to all General Aviation aircraft making international flights expecting to arrive in and depart from the UK (including within the Common Travel Area,: Ireland, Great Britain, Isle of Man, Channel Islands).

International GA flights arriving in or departing from the UK are required to be submit information online about the flight and persons on board (both passengers and crew), no earlier than 48 hours and no later than 2 hours prior to the expected time of departure.

General Aviation Reports emailed directly to Border Force will no longer be compliant and will not be accepted.

The relevant information can be provided online using the Government’s free-to-use ‘sGAR’ webservice.

You may also use third party applications which have secure links to Home Office systems for the transmission of this information, see Annex G” (below)

This means that GAR forms submitted through SkyDemon should now be seamlessly accepted. (Ref Appendix G to General Aviation Report Guidance 2024) general-aviation-report-guidance-accessible)

Annex G: 3rd party applications with secure links to Home Office systems

If you are unable to submit a GAR using the sGAR service, you may also complete and submit a GAR by emailing it in Excel format to the National Co-ordination Unit (NCU): ncu@hmrc.gov.uk.

Additional information about submitting a GAR can also be found in the General Aviation Guidance

Civil Penalties Border Force will be operating a civil penalty regime that will underpin the 2024 regulations. Failing to comply with the 2024 regulations may result in a civil penalty of up to £10,000 per breach. Complete guidance on the civil penalty regime will be available on gov.uk in due course.
