To ensure aviation safety and security, we are required to collect information about passengers travelling to certain countries. We are also required to provide certain governments with direct access to airline passenger bookings. However, we only provide customs and immigration authorities with the exact information they request.
To ensure there are no delays in your immigration clearance, it is important that you provide accurate information. We recommend that you provide this information prior to arriving, departing or transiting at the airport.
