Visitors expected to meet our entry requirements
28th June 2011: Creative artists from across the world are welcome to come and perform in the UK, says the UK Border Agency.
Responding to media coverage about the points-based system’s effect on visits to the UK by world-class artists and musicians, a UKBA spokesperson said: `Creative artists from across the world are welcome to come and perform in the UK.
`As part of our commitment to the industry, we work with organisers of international events to ensure they are aware of the application process and are able to help facilitate urgent cases. However, as with any visitors to the UK, we expect individuals to meet our entry requirements.’
