TIER category (points based system) – is the British immigration opening for migrants to come to study and work in the UK. According to each TIER visa you need to obtain a certain amount of points. The points are awarded if you meet all the requirements. If you want to know more click here.
Only TIER 4 General Students have to pass the interview with a British Embassy representative. The interview is conducted in English on skype. Here are examples of the questions:
- Why did you choose the UK for your studies?
- Why did you choose this University?
- Why did you choose this course?
- What do you plan to do after you finish your course?
All applicants have to visit the visa centre.
Your passport should be valid during the whole period of your trip to the United Kingdom. You should have at least one page in your passport that is blank from both sides.
All financial documents must be made within the period of 1 month before the moment when you apply for a UK visa in the visa centre.
If you did not travel to the UK with your UK visa, there is nothing to worry about. You can explain your situation and why you could not go to the UK. There should be no refusal because of this issue.
Unfortunately no, the Immigration Service doesn’t refund the visa fee, if your visa is refused.
If you paid for IHS (Immigration Health Surcharge) as the part of your visa application, the payment will be refunded if your UK visa is refused. It happens automatically in about 40 days.
No, you don’t need to the originals. It is enough to show the copies of these documents.
You don’t need to pay for air-tickets and hotel. It is enough to show hotel reservation (you can book it with free cancellation option).
You can not get married in the United Kingdom, if your have just a touristic visa. It is prohibited. You can check what you can and can’t do here (What you can / can’t do with your UK tourist visa).
No! We don’t provide any kind of financial documents to you. And we don’t advise the applicant to show false documents when you apply for a UK visa, because these documents are checked by an immigration officer. We know that many agencies do provide such false financial documents, it is clearly the best way to get a refusal! If there is any doubt, a visa officer will refuse your visa with a 10-year-pre-ban to enter the UK.
If you are in the relationship with a UK citizen, and you have plans for a common future, we strongly recommend showing the information about this person in the visa application (How important it is to show friends and relatives in the UK).
You have to visit a visa centre and provide with your biometric details each time you apply for a UK visa.
We recommend to stay in the UK not longer than 90 days (and even less is better) per each 6 months. It is better if you don’t stay these 90 days in a row.
You don’t need to provide with a notary English translation of your documents. You need your translator to confirm the accuracy of his translation and provide his contact details.
If you don’t have a 10-year-ban to enter the UK, in general you don’t have to wait before the new application after your UK visa is refused. For more information you can contact our agency.
Unfortunately, you don’t have this right, if you apply for a visitor visa.
No, you cant travel to the UK with a valid Schengen visa. You have to obtain a UK visa.
Unfortunately, you will have to apply for a UK visa again.
There is nothing wrong with that. You can prepare a special cover letter. Or you can write a correct variant in the visa centre with the permission of the visa centre specialist.
It happens that British immigration officers make mistakes in visas: applicant’s name, visa expiration dates, etc. In such cases, you can contact the support service. If immigration officers agree with their mistake, you need to send the passport to the UK for making changes. You can bring your passport to the visa centre, and they will send your passport to the UK. You should be prepared that the whole procedure can take about 4-5 weeks.
