Nationals of Croatia are non-visa nationals and therefore not required to obtain entry clearance before visiting the UK. Nationals of Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia and Bosnia-Herzegovina are visa nationals and must apply for entry clearance and be issued with a visa before travelling to the UK for a visit or any other purpose.
[holding answer 23 February 2009]: The number of visas issued in 2008 to participants in these schemes is shown in the following table. We cannot state how many visas were issued to dependents of those who have entered in these specific employment categories. This is because they are admitted under the same provision in the immigration rules as dependents of those entering in other employment categories, and separate records are therefore not kept.
