DFDS DOVER-FRANCE CUSTOMER ADVICE – TRAVELLING WHEN OPERATION STACK IS IN PLACE

DFDS check-in controls open 2 hours prior to the departure and close no later than 45 minutes prior to the scheduled departure. During busy periods we highly recommend all customers to allow 90 minutes to complete the check-in process on arrival at port. Customers are required to have your passports ready for inspection at Border and check-in controls on approach to the terminal.
