Immigration Rules

Immigration Rules

The Immigration Rules are made by the Council of Ministers and outline the practice to be followed in the administration of the Immigration Acts as extended to the Isle of Man for regulating the entry into and the stay of persons in the Isle of Man.

The Isle of Man Immigration Rules, whilst not identical to the United Kingdom (UK) Immigration Rules, are based on the UK Rules and are very similar. However, they are not identical and there are some provisions within the UK Rules that do not apply here and some in the Isle of Man Immigration Rules that do not apply in the UK. There are also, as in the UK, provisions within the Isle of Man Immigration Rules that apply only to Commonwealth citizens.

Sponsor Licensing Policy

The Sponsor Licensing policies are made by the Council of Ministers and outline the practice to be followed in the administration of sponsor licences for employers and academic institutions wishing to sponsor applicants on the Tier 4, Tier 5 and Worker visa routes.
