    It could be let through as in:
    A: We need to get in, we simply can't miss the concert. Please!
    B: Okay, I am going to let you through, but if anybody asks you sneaked in!
    This is not a phrasal verb.

    Re: Phrasal verb

    It means 'allow to pass through (a gate or other barrier)'.

    I agree with the previous answer: it is not a true phrasal verb, but a loose combination of transitive verb and (depending on the presence or absence of a nominal object) a preposition or adverb.
