UK BORDER AGENCY (UKBA) – a defunct agency

UK Border Agency (UKBA) now rebranded as Border Force

Defunct UKBA logo

With effect from 31 March 2013 UKBA is now defunct

WANTED Badges and/or patches relating to the UK Border Agency. The executive agency status of the UKBA was removed as of 31 March 2013. Therefore I assume all uniform badges/patches have been withdrawn, with the formation of the Border Force and UK Visas & Immigration.

With that in mind I hope there will be many Officers who still have the old patches and ID badges in their possession?

I would love to add some examples of the old UKBA identification to my website. Therefore this is an appeal for all you kind folks out there to consider helping me out (an ex-Cussie). If need be I will also consider purchasing said items.

Also if anyone fancies sending me some pictures for inclusion on my site that would be really nice too.

Finally, for all those staff who now find themselves members of the latest reincarnation called the Border Force I would love to hear your comments (good or bad), as to how these changes have affected you? Again, if you have any pictures of the latest uniform badges, or ID/Warrant badge, it would be great to see those as well.

Please have a look at the tab marked UKBF & UKBA and tell me what I have missed showing. Please contact me at
