Why having an entry clearance visa doesn’t guarantee the right to enter UK

UK Border

‪When you are granted an entry clearance visa to come to the UK, you only have a “presumed right of entry”.

UK BorderThis means that if Immigration doubt you at the airport, they can detain you and put you on the next plane back to your country of origin.

For instance, if you have a visitor’s visa, it may look suspect if you showed up at the airport with a suitcase full of CVs and interview suits.

You would appear to be someone who should have applied for a work visa, or who is looking for work.

You should therefore take great care to apply for the visa that best suits your reason for wanting to come to the UK.
