Heathrow Airport has suggested that flights may be diverted to other London Airports if queues at the UK border become too great

According to the Director-General of the UK Border Force, it currently takes five to ten minutes to process each passenger arriving in the UK.

Many countries have implemented additional requirements for passengers to gain entry. This could be presenting passenger locator forms, travel declarations, or negative COVID-19 test certificates. Accompanying this is an increase in the administrative work required to process each passenger, as has been seen at many borders across the globe.
