More information

The Isle of Man Immigration Service are regulators for immigration services in the Isle of Man. Accordingly, its officers are unable to give advice on immigration matters as this could result in a conflict of interest when considering an application which might be made.

The information contained within this immigration website is intended as a general guide only and should not be taken as immigration advice.

It is the responsibility of any person making an application for entry clearance or to vary their leave to satisfy themselves that they meet the requirements for the category to which they are applying before making such an application. The Isle of Man Immigration Service strongly recommends each applicant seeks their own independent legal advice from a person qualified to give immigration advice.

Information on Isle of Man Advocates who specialise in immigration law can be found on the Isle of Man Law Society website.

Important Information

At this time Ukraine Family Scheme Visa applications are being given priority. This may cause an increase in processing times for all other types of visa application.

The processing times for visa applications are estimates only. The processing of your application could be subject to processes and timescales of third parties over which we may have no control. The Cabinet Office strongly advises against the booking of travel before an individual receives their grant of leave. The Cabinet Office accepts no responsibility for travel booked by applicants that cannot be fulfilled due to their visa application not being considered before they are due to travel.

The Cabinet Office recommends that you do not purchase tickets or make bookings which cannot be cancelled, prior to the issuance of a visa, except where it is a specific requirement stated as part of the visa application, in which case open tickets should be obtained.
