This page describes the UK Border Agency's organisational structure and the composition of the UK Border Agency board.
We are an agency of the Home Office, and our organisation is divided into 4 unified operations:

- enforcement and crime
Each operational area is led by a director. Our operational areas are supported by 2 corporate service directorates.
