Upon arrival into the UK, you must present a valid passport, and in some cases, a visa. As a general rule passports should be valid for at least six months. Citizens of countries in the European Economic Area (EEA) do not require a Visa. Many visitors from other countries are also exempt from the visa requirement for visits of 3 - 6 months - this includes Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the US. However you will be required to complete a landing card upon arrival.
Ensure that you check whether or not you require a Visa well before you plan to arrive in the UK. Visas cannot be issued in the UK so you must hold one before entry if required to do so. You may be required to show immigration officials that you have return or onward tickets and adequate means of support and accommodation upon entering the UK.
Check the British Home office site for detailed requirements at http://www.ukvisas.gov.uk/en/
There are no departure taxes from UK airports.
As entry requirements may change from time to time it is strongly advised that you check with the department of foreign affairs or your local consulate or embassy for the current requirements.
