From 1 April 2013 the UK Border Agency was split into 2 separate units within the Home Office: an immigration and visa service and an immigration law enforcement division.

These organisational changes to the UK Border Agency do not affect the validity of any reference to the agency in any document or form on this website. The UK's Immigration Rules will also remain in force.
