Below are suggested best practices in view of the recent concern on student visas being misused for entry into the UK. You are advised to be prepared on all issues discussed here. Pass the message on.
1) Any person holding a valid UK visa can still be refused entry at the border control point (airport) on grounds of providing unsatisfactory answers to any queries.
2) Notify your UK college authority on your travel details. Often the colleges get calls from the airport immigration desk asking if they are expecting a particular student and if so what his/her flight details are. Thus the colleges need to have the information in advance and will not be able to respond satisfactorily which could lead to the student being refused entry.
3) Students coming to UK to study in London should land only at Heathrow/Gatwick/City/Stansted airports. Landing in any other city results in detailed questioning at immigration and any unsatisfactory answers could lead to refusal on entry.
4) Student should carry all his documents with him.
5) Students are best advised to arrive in UK preferably during the morning hours so that their colleges can provide any assistance if required.
6) Students should compulsorily visit the college website and understand the details regarding the college, the modules of study for their respective courses and be prepared to answer questions regarding their academic qualification to date.
7) Students should be in touch with the college immediately if they come across any issues at border points. They should not sign any documents presented to them and should request the UKBA authorities for notifying the college.
8) Students coming to study at the respective college should report to the college within the next working day of arrival in UK. This is irrespective of when the classes are scheduled to begin. After initial reporting, the students need to come to college only on the day the classes start for the specific course.
The colleges are obliged to keep accurate records of the date on which a student reports. If the student does not report to the college the following consequences may arise
- the student may be stopped anywhere in UK and asked to produce passport/visa and if they have not reported to the college they would be liable for further action by the authorities.
- If there is a gap between the date of arrival in UK and the date of reporting at the college there could be problems at the time of visa renewal or PSW application.
9) Have fun, enjoy your life and study. "Be focused and dedicated in all your undertakings".
"Humour", "Pure Intention", "Will", "Determination", "Commitment" are the No 1 requirements for success in any field.
