Like anyone else who is subject to immigration control, a person who is a "relevant foreign national" will be given an entry clearance if he or she meets the relevant criteria as set out in the Immigration Rules, and there are no overriding reasons for refusing entry. By "overriding reasons", I mean the general grounds for refusing leave to enter which are set out in Part 9 of the rules.

Does this answer the above question?
