CCPR: Sports Visitor Visas

From the CCPR, visit their website www.ccpr.org.uk

New visitor visa and managed migration legislation is in force for 2009 and sports people entering the UK from certain countries will have new procedures to follow. CCPR are advising that this will be particularly important to sporting organisations hosting international events in the UK.

CCPR has worked with LOCOG, UK Sport, UK Visas, UK Border Agency, Foreign and Commonwealth Office and DCMS to produce a short, but definitive, guide for foreign competitors.

The guidelines, ‘written by and for sport, but approved and branded by UKBA for your confidence’ including information on who needs to apply, and how to go about it, is available to download here (pdf)
