Pleasure craft reporting has changed

Published on: 01 September 2022

Travellers can now submit required details via a faster online form

UK Border Force has introduced a new, simpler, and faster way to complete a pleasure craft report making it easier for travellers whilst also improving border security. It provides a one-stop service recording all necessary information for both Border Force and HMRC.

This is applicable to anyone who owns, or is responsible for, a pleasure craft that sails to, or from the UK, and is required to provide Border Force with information about: 

  • the vessel 
  • the voyage 
  • individuals on board 
  • goods on board 

Instead of having to download the C1331 form, the information can be directly submitted by completing the information using the new editable online form.   

For further information on the process and how to access the new online form can be found here – Sailing pleasure craft to and from the UK – GOV.UK (

The C1331 form can still be downloaded, completed and returned by post or email if necessary.
