With effect from January 31, 2024, the route of the International Sportsperson visa will be changed to correct a former error that occurred while drafting the rules. This amendment enables international sportspersons to apply for entry clearance from any country they live in, provided that they are applying for 12 months or less and that the candidate can prove their lawful residence in that country and that they are engaged in sporting activities.
