Air Passenger Information

Advance Passenger Information before you travel

If you’re travelling to another country, you may be asked by your airline to provide your passenger information beforehand. This is a separate requirement to getting a travel authority or a visa. In most cases you can provide your details online. Find out what you need to do before travelling. 

For security reasons, the US, most EU member states, and other countries now require airlines to provide details about their passengers before they travel. This is known as Advance Passenger Information (API). 

Your airline will let you know what they need from you.Usually, they will ask you to provide these details when you book your flight or check in. Contact your airline if you have any questions about API requirements. Providing your API should not be confused with applying for a visa. You will still need to follow the entry rules for every country you visit, as well as any customs and passport control regulations. 

Your airline will usually ask you to give the information found on the photo page of your passport or, if travelling within Europe, your national identity card.  Your information will be taken either at the time of booking or by an automated passport reader during check-in.

In most cases, you may not be allowed to travel if you do not provide your API in the time required.
