Entry Clearance Error Correction Scheme

This scheme was introduced by the Home Office to correct mistakes made by the Embassies or High Commissions overseas when they are granting entry clearance to the UK.

If a mistake was made, it can be amended free of charge. You can only use this scheme if the entry clearance issued by the Embassies or High Commissions is valid and your leave has not been extended by the Home Office UK Visa & Immigrations.

International Student Support can assist you in checking if you have a case to submit to the Entry Clearance Error Correction team. If you think the dates issued on your current entry clearance visa are wrong, you must make an appointment as soon as possible by emailing

When you come for your apointment you must bring your passport/visa and the original offer letter or CAS statement from Queen's which you used to apply for your entry clearance visa.
