There is no specific provision in the Immigration Rules or in the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2016 to ban trophy hunters from entering the UK.

Non-EEA nationals may be refused entry on the basis of their character, conduct or associations, or where their offending has caused serious harm. EEA nationals may be refused admission on the grounds of public policy, public security or public health.
