IMPORTANT NEW ECB VISA INFORMATION FOR LEAGUES AND CLUBS IN 2017

The ECB has written to say that:

" We know that understanding visa requirements for overseas players joining your club can be a tricky web to untangle. The difference between ‘professional sportspersons’ and ‘amateurs’ can seem blurred and knowing what you need to do legally, can therefore seem too difficult to bother with.

Following discussions with the Home Office, we’ve created a document with their approval that we hope makes it easier for clubs to understand - Home Office Immigration Rules for Cricket.

Unfortunately, we can’t provide you with legal advice directly. However, we’ll continue to do our best to explain your requirements in the simplest way possible. For more information, we recommend you visit the Home Office website or check out some useful links below as well as an FAQ sheet.

Should you have any further queries, please email us at managedmigration@ecb.co.uk. "
