Tier 2 Sportsmans Visa:
If you are a player from outside the EU and you have a PDC Tour Card you can get a Tier 2 Sportsmans Visa for the duration of your tour card.
What you need to do is contact Nigel Mawer (As Above) and he will issue a Certificate of Sponsorship, this is a fixed fee to UK Borders at a cost of £199, UK Borders will then issue Nigel Mawer with a Migrant Endorsement. He will then issue the player with a letter with the relevant references, then player can then apply for the Tier 2 visa.
If you are a player coming to the UK to play in UK Q-School you should come on a visitor visa. If you then obtains a tour card you can go through the proces to obtain a Tier 2 visa when your visitor visa expires.
Tier 5 Sportsmans Visa:
There is also a Tier 5 Sportsmans Visa, which any Non Tour Card Holder could apply for if you were going to regularly enter and exit the UK for the Challenge/Development Tour. This type of Visa is more difficult to access with UK Borders, as they are much more reluctant to issue such visas.
