Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
The United Kingdom is made up of several countries of which England is one.
You should put the UK really as this is the most commonly recognised and called. Its the same if you go to a different country ie the USA.
On the landing card if you put England they strike it out and put UK.
So whilst technically England is fine, you want it processed without delay so I would put UK.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
