Entry Clearance

Entry clearance is the process of requesting a Visa to enter the UK. It applies to those outside of the EU, EEA or Switzerland.

If you are looking to come to the UK. Then you may be required to apply for Entry Clearance. There are certain requirements you must meet. So our team advise you through the process ensuring you get everything right.

What is Entry Clearance?

To apply for Entry Clearance you will need to visit the British Embassy, Consulate or High Commission. They provide a certificate permitting the applicant to present themselves at a UK Immigration port for entry.

However, the Entry Clearance Certificate is not a guarantee that the applicant can enter the UK. If the application for Entry Clearance is successful then a Visa will be granted.

Entry to the UK is not guaranteed by having entry clearance. It is a common misconception. Every applicant holding the certificate is still liable to immigration control. Therefore arriving at the UK airport, the passport containing the Visa needs to be presented.

The British Consulates and High Commissions abroad have the authority to refuse visa applications. However, in some circumstances they ban applicants from re-applying. Unfortunately, some of these decisions cannot be appealed.
