ENTRY CLEARANCE BEFORE TRAVELLING TO THE UK
If you are a visa national, you must apply for entry clearance before travelling to the UK. There is a charge for the application. You must satisfy the ECO at a British Mission that you meet the Immigration Rules. The ECO will then issue you entry clearance (more commonly known as a visa) in the form of a sticker in your passport. The entry clearance should normally be valid for the whole length of your course. When you arrive in the UK, the Immigration Officer at the port of entry (e.g. Heathrow airport) will put a date stamp in your passport to show when you entered the UK. Your permission to be in the UK begins on that date and expires on the date indicated on the entry clearance.
BRINGING A SPOUSE AND CHILDREN TO THE UK
You will usually be allowed to bring your spouse and any children under 18 years of age to the UK, if you are holding an offer for a Master’s Degree from a University and as long as you can show that you can financially support and accommodate them. You will also need to show the ECO a marriage certificate and a birth certificate for each child. It is advisable for them to apply for entry clearance, even if they are not visa nationals. They will normally be given permission to stay in the UK for the same period as you. Your spouse will be allowed to work if your permission to be in the UK lasts for 12 months or more. Make sure your spouse has a copy of your passport with them if they apply after you – the Immigration Officer will need to see the page showing your name, your entry clearance sticker (if you have one) and how long your permission lasts. If your permission to be in the UK lasts for less than 12 months, your spouse will not be allowed to work.
