Migration for Non EEA / EU national

Migrants from outside Europe may come to the UK by obtaining an Entry Clearance from the British Embassy at their ordinarily resident country. The Entry Clearance will be in the form of a visa or entry clearance certificate. It is mandatory for visa national applicants to have obtained the permission to enter into the UK prior to their travel plans. However a non visa national is allowed to travel into the UK without any Entry Clearance if their stay in the UK is not beyond 6 months. But the purpose of the travel to the UK would determine ultimately, if the non visa national would require an Entry Clearance prior to their departure. In addition to that, both visa nationals and non visa nationals must satisfy the Immigration Officer at the port of entry, their intention for seeking entry into the UK. If they are unable to demonstrate and convince the Immigration Officer satisfactorily then Leave to Enter would be denied and they would be immediately removed to their country of origin. It would be a prudent step for any individuals having travel plans to the UK to consult an Immigration Solicitor of their purpose of travel and obtain legal advice as to how they could comply with the complex and rapidly changing Immigration Rules to avoid any harsh decision by the UK Border Agency.
