With the UKBA expecting to carry out security checks on more than 380,000 workers and participants, it has set out detailed information for those individuals who will be travelling to the UK for the event. The information is divided into the following categories:

  • spectators;
  • athletes, coaches, officials and accredited media (known as 'Games family members');
  • other accredited people (including specialist volunteers, in accreditation category codes OCOG, S or X); and
  • non-accredited media
