Nigerians, And Others From "High Risk" Countries To Pay Bond Before Entering The UK
Nigerians, And Others From

To end what they call "abuse of Visa system" the United Kingdom's government has come up with an unusual plan, every visitor from Bangladesh, Nigeria and Ghana will have to pay a £3,000 before being allowed to enter the UK.

They will only get their money back when they live the UK, reports the Daily Mail.

Home Secretary Theresa May said the intention was to make the immigration system more ‘selective’ and deter people from ‘overstaying’ once their visitor visa has expired. In the long-term, she hopes to extend the Australian-style bond scheme to also include foreign workers and students.

The idea will be welcomed by backbench Tory MPs, who have been urging the government to take a tougher line on immigration to combat the threat of UKIP.

But it is likely to face legal challenges on the grounds that because it targets only people from so-called ‘high risk’ countries it is discriminatory.

But wait the Great Britain fears that countries like India might also put similar laws into place for their people roaming in India.

 

The scheme will be piloted from November, for people from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nigeria and Ghana. They are being targeted because of the high volume of visitor visa applications and relatively high levels of abuse.
