The UK is the 8th most popular tourist destination. Many people also come to visit family or undertake a short educational course, or perhaps to be married here. Depending on the visitor’s nationality and the reason for the visit, it may be necessary to seek entry clearance before travel. In some cases visitors may seek entry on arrival to the UK granted by an Immigration Officer. McGill & Co are highly experienced in securing the necessary clearance to allow travel, or in providing advice to visitors due to seek entry on arrival.
In UK Immigration law visitors are regulated under Appendix V of the Immigration Rules. Appendix V contains important provisions related to the eligibility of an individual to visit, duration of stays, permitted activities and extensions. It is important to closely abide by the conditions of a visa or grant of entry to preserve your ability to visit the UK for the future.
