    ePassport queue is so much quicker but as more people get them the slower it gets...still worth it tho

    It was very quick & efficient. But maybe that's because we landed just before noon!

    Quite frankly, I have never experienced a more efficient and polite security check anywhere.

    No matter how many trays you have, always smile, people can't be angry at you for making them wait! 

    If you use the electronic border control and wear glasses, remember to take them off. The iris scanner can't handle it :-)

    If you're stuck in the queue for passport control (and not at the desk yet) then check in here.

    If you fly often, take few immigration cards here and complete in advance

    Waiting time in a queue can be way longer than your flight was! Plan!

    Fast Track lane is a sham. _Way_ slower than general lane.

    Always plan 45 minutes - 1 hour for T3 border control if you are not UK or EU.

    At least 1 hour during busy periods. Ridiculous. Not enough staff for sure!

    As a mayor of this place I apologize for a long queue here. Maybe I should be dismissed?

    T3 Transfer security control one of the worst security staff in the world. Incompetent, rude and lazy. Not the case for rest of the airport.
