The Immigration Rules include a definition of a Minister of Religion. Officials ensure that published guidance provides the necessary direction for sponsors and migrants wishing to come to the UK, to ensure they select the appropriate visa category. All guidance documents are subject to review, both as a matter of routine and in response to feedback from users.
