Please note that Cricket Scotland will only issue Governing Body Endorsements (GBE) in line with the conditions of the GBE Requirements attached.  The issuing of a GBE does not in any way infer that an individual will be granted a visa. That is the sole decision of UK Visas & Immigration.

It should be further noted that it is the responsibility of the Club (as ‘employer’) and the individual to ensure that any individual playing cricket in Scotland is in the country under a visa that allows them to participate in the sport.

If there are any questions then please do not hesitate to contact Iain Murdoch at Cricket Scotland in the first instance.
