Immigration Arrangements for Ministers of Religion

Please Note: The existing scheme for Ministers of Religion has closed to new entrants. A revised scheme for Ministers Of Religion, including revised conditions of entry, will launch on 30 April, 2018. Application forms and related policy documents will be available from that date. Potential applicants are advised that the revised scheme will include a pre-clearance procedure applicable to all applicants whether they are visa required or not. No new applications will be accepted in advance of this date.

In the meantime persons who enjoy an immigration permission under the current scheme may continue to have their immigration permission renewed in accordance with the policy applicable at the time they made their initial application. Such persons will be subject to any transitional arrangements set out in the proposed new policy once it has been introduced.

05 April 2018


IMPORTANT NOTE: It is the responsibility of every non-EEA national to keep their immigration permission up to date at all times.
