Chapter Summary

The maintenance of decision-making away from public scrutiny is supported in the case of the UK by a belief in immigration control as a matter for the executive branch of government, and by practices which enact that belief. This chapter discusses the roles currently played in this process by two extraterritorial immigration control mechanisms: entry clearance and juxtaposed control. Entry clearance has a long history, and is the quintessential form of semi-formalised executive discretion. A short historical account shows how it has grown up uniquely apart from democratic control though in relationship to it. The chapter charts the use and development of entry clearance, including its enhancement by technology. It describes the establishment of juxtaposed controls, by which leave to enter may be granted or refused abroad, and the particular problems these present in terms conflicts of laws, accountability, redress and protection for travellers.
