Entry Clearance OR visa assistance in uk : A visa or entry clearance will not be required if a person holds a United Kingdom passport or one issued by another country in the European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA), or Switzerland. There are various advantages of having the entry clearance including: You can get the permission to stay for the full length of your course; You will quickly clear immigration control at the airport in the UK; You can appeal from within the UK in case of any problem at immigration control in the UK; You would be able to check before traveling that you have been given an entry clearance sticker allowing you to work part-time; In case you later change your mind about how long you want to study in the UK, you will be able to ask the Border and Immigration Agency in the UK to allow you to stay longer. You will not be able to do this if you do not have entry clearance, unless the course is at degree level or above. Instead, it would be expected of you to return to your home country and apply for entry clearance. This restriction applies even to British nationals (overseas), British overseas territories citizens, British overseas citizens, British protected persons and British subjects.

Applying for Entry Clearance: To obtain entry clearance, you must apply at the British Mission in your home country. The British Mission will give you a form to fill in and information about the documents you need to provide. There is a charge for the application. You will need to satisfy the Entry Clearance Officer (ECO) at the British Mission that you meet the students’ immigration requirements, who will then issue entry clearance in the form of a sticker in your passport. The entry clearance should normally be valid for the entire duration of your course. The Immigration Officer, at the UK’s port of entry will put a date stamp in your passport to show when you entered the UK. Your permission to be in the UK expires on the date indicated on the entry clearance. The forms required For getting an entry clearance, you will have to contact your local British Embassy, High Commission or Consulate-General for entry clearance form.
