Changes in immigration law.
Following Brexit, the UK Government has made changes to the Immigration Rules. The changes outline the visa requirements for EU Nationals and introduce two new categories of visas: British National (Overseas) Visa and Visitor Visas.
The main points are as follows:
EU Nationals, who do not have Settled or Pre-Settled Status, will now need to obtain a Child Student or Student visa to study in the UK for more than 6 months. This requirement does not apply to Irish nationals, who continue to be able to study in the UK without a visa.
Child Student/ Student Visas (previously known as Tier 4 visas)
These visas replace the old Tier 4 visas. The same points based system will apply but students from some countries will be exempt from the financial requirements eg EEA, US, Australian, Canadian and Chinese nationals. Applications from outside the UK can now be submitted up to six months before the start of the course. We are able to sponsor Child Student/Student visas for our pupils. Our advisers, Newland Chase Education, manage all these visa applications to ensure that all applicants comply with the regulations.
British National (Overseas) Visa
This is a new category of visa for those who are resident in Hong Kong and can provide evidence that they can provide accommodation and financial support for themselves and their dependents in the UK. Students with this category of visa can study in the UK but would not be entitled to public funds or to use the NHS for free.
This visa replaces the Short Term Study visa and allows visitors to live and study in the UK for up to six months. For EEA and certain other nationals, Visitor Visas will be granted at border control. Other nationals will need to obtain this visa before travelling to the UK.
This is only a brief summary of the changes. If you would like any further information or advice please feel free to contact our Compliance Manager, Maxine Zeltser, at email@example.com
