I got a UK visa last month and visited London for a week. It was my first visit to the United Kingdom. I checked-in online when I was leaving the country and entered my visa number as an additional document. I was surprised after security checks in the airport, there is no passport control and I will not get a "leave stamp" in the passport.

How do I check if my visa information was passed to immigration service? Since I had an electronic check-in via a third-party airline company website, I can not be 100% sure that the company passed the information to theUK immigration services or their website works 100% correctly.

I already read the answer from here Left UK without passing through Immigration, why?

In order to avoid misunderstandings, I am not curious about WHY I do not have leave stamp, my question is: WHERE to check if my departure has been registered?

The proposed duplicate How to fill out and apply for Subject Access Request (SAR)? and its answer appears to be obsolete because "The Data Protection Act 1998 has been replaced by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018.

    @phoog My question is not about WHY i left without leave stamp. My question is WHERE do I check if my information is passed and my is registered. Its not a duplicate. – Neil Galiaskarov Jul 13 '18 at 14:07
  • Ok, I've retracted my close vote. I don't think it's possible to check, but it might be. The airline's systems, though, surely work directly from their boarding pass records, and do not depend on how you checked in. The information doesn't pass directly from the online check-in system, but rather from the boarding system into which your check-in data was passed by the third party. They have to be sure not only that you checked in, but that you boarded the plane and were still on it when it left the country. That's one reason why they scan boarding passes electronically. – phoog Jul 13 '18 at 14:08
  • It depends how I checked in.. What if (well I am a bit paranoic) I made a mistake while entering my visa number? In that case UK immigration service will think that I break the rules? They scan my boarding pass - yes, they do not scan my visa info, so possibly there might be a situation when passenger wants to edit that info? – Neil Galiaskarov Jul 13 '18 at 14:11

    They will match your record with your passport number. That's why they scan passports electronically as well. They did scan your passport electronically before you boarded the plane, didn't they? – phoog Jul 13 '18 at 14:13
