Abstract

Considers the author's experiences of entry clearances for settlement and marriage applications from the Indian subcontinent. Discusses the role of the entry clearance officer. Examines the entry clearance process, focusing on the importance of well informed applicants, decisions on whether to arrange an interview with the applicant, the interviews themselves, and the use of refusal notices. Outlines the requirement for the applicant to submit supporting evidence with their application, with reference to the standard of proof, forged documents, and the importance of local knowledge. Notes the exercise of quality control.
