Please note: The English FA have certain rules regarding clearance for International players which may affect players being eligible to play in certain competitions. we would always suggest you are a "free agent" before attending our courses to avoid any unneccessary problems at a later date.
Please ensure that you understand that EFA will not be responsible for your visa application or the success thereof. If you are not sure you meet the entry requirements or are uncertain about the visa process PLEASE SEEK ADVICE BEFORE PAYING YOUR RESERVATION FEE. EFA accepts no responsibility or liablity for losses resulting in visa rejections, or delays caused by the visa application process.
By signing the registration form whether hard copy or online, and by making a payment to us, you are accepting that you agree and understand these terms and conditions. Being rejected a visa, whether due to incomplete details on the application, or otherwise does not give grounds for refunds under any circumstances as it is down the individual applicant to ensure full disclosure.
Here are some common visa rejections reasons to be sure to avoid:
Often rejections are given due to incomplete details, failure to show relationships between parents / relatives (birth certificates), lack of proof of funds available (bank statements incomplete), failure to assure the UKVI that the player will return to his country after the course, or application for the wrong type of visa altogether. It is the responsibility of the players/parents to ensure they have a full and clear understanding of this because we cannot accept and liability or responsibility for getting this wrong.
