UK Entry Clearance

Compulsory entry clearance requirement for all people staying in the UK for more than six months

From 14th January 2006, all nationals of non EEA member states travelling to the UK for more than six months will need an entry clearance. This date marks the end of the “grace period” granted on 13 November 2005 when this new requirement came into effect.

All nationals of non EEA member states who wish to come to the UK for more than six months need to obtain an entry clearance from a British diplomatic mission before travelling. Passengers arriving in the UK without an entry clearance will be refused leave to enter.
