New UK Legislation

Changes to UK entry Visa requirements from
13 November 2003

From 13 November 2003, entry clearance will be required for nationals of Australia and New Zealand who intend to stay in the UK for longer than six months. In addition, all UK Work Permit Holders staying for more than six months will require entry clearance.

There will be transition arrangements to ensure that genuine passengers are not unduly inconvenience. A "grace period" will operate until 23.59 on 13 January 2004 during which time any passenger who arrives at a UK port, and would qualify for entry except for the absence of the necessary entry clearance, will be admitted.
