UK tightens its borders
by UPI

LONDON - Travelers entering or leaving Britain may have to answer 53 questions about their finances and travel plans as part of beefed up security measures.

In addition to requiring travel itineraries and contact phone numbers, the British government planned to require travelers to provide credit card information and e-mail addresses by mid-2009 as part of its "e-borders" system, The Daily Mail reported today.

By 2014, every passenger in and out of Britain will be profiled as part of the government's effort to tighten its borders, the newspaper said.

Passenger information will be taken when tickets are purchased and will be shared among police, immigration and customs officials for at least 24 hours before trips.

Those who officials consider a potential threat can be denied travel permits. Additionally, travelers who owe the British government fines, including traffic violations, can be barred from leaving the country.

Costs for the program are expected to be passed on to travelers in the form of higher ticket prices.
