Britain Tracks Out of Country Travelers

Ad Feedback

Britain is planning to set up a database to record the personal information of everyone who travels out of the country.

The new plan is called e-boarders. It will require all travelers leaving Britain to fill out an online form detailing the trip.

The database will track personal information, including credit card information and home addresses. The information could stay in the database for as long as 10 years.

E-boarders will apply to anyone leaving the country, even sport swimmers crossing the English Channel.

Civil liberties groups are outraged. They claim there is no need for the government to look at sensitive personal and financial information.

E-boarders is already partly in effect. It is expected to be up and running fully by 2014.
