TRAVEL ADVICE FOR FOREIGN NATIONALS VISITING THE UK
In the wake of the military action in Afghanistan and the terrorist attacks in the United States, some visitors travelling to the United Kingdom may be concerned about the threat of future terrorist action against the UK. Her Majesty's Government takes the possibility of any threat to the UK very seriously. While there is no specific threat against targets in the UK, we are vigilant and have put in place all suitable precautions.


All overseas nationals who wish to enter the UK must satisfy the Immigration Officer at the port of arrival that they meet the requirements of the Immigration Rules.

The Home Office through its Immigration and Nationality Directorate (IND) is responsible for immigration policy and the UK's on-entry and after entry controls. The Home Office/FCO Joint Entry Clearance Unit (JECU) runs the UK's pre-entry control through the entry clearance operation at Embassies and High Commissions overseas.

Information about the UK's entry clearance operation is available via the links on the right.
