Entry Clearance is required for all visa nationals wanting to travel to the United Kingdom. It is the procedure used by Entry Clearance Officers (ECOs) at British embassies overseas to check, before a person arrives in the UK, if that person qualifies under the Immigration Rules for entry into the UK.
Many individuals travelling with passports issued by Western countries do not need Entry Clearance. However, it is important to check with your local consulate as these are open to change.
The prospect of Entry Clearance into the United Kingdom can be very complicated and costly if not carried out correctly. It is important to follow Entry Clearance guidance in order to prevent refusal of entry. Errors in Applications can mean several months away from family members or perhaps missing a special event altogether due to months delay. Furthermore, those whom have successfully obtained Entry Clearance can still be refused entry into the UK. Therefore, it is important that you are aware of your rights beforehand to ensure a swift and hassle free entry.
