Just got back from the UK, a word of warning to all ferry users coming into Caen
Normally it only took 20-40 mins to clear the port.
Today we were about the 40th car off a half empty ferry and it took us 45mins to clear passport control. If you were at the back of the queue God only knows how long it would have taken.
The main delay was people that used their phones to present the appropriate forms. The car in front of us had four occupants, each of which had to pass the phones to the boarder guards several times. It took them 10 mins to clear.
Please, please , please print your docs out. It is so much quicker and easier.
On the other side, no questions about what goods you were carrying
Glad to be back
