The United Kingdom is prepared to implement new rules that will likely bar Nigerian students and students of other nations from bringing their family to the UK.
This crackdown is scheduled to be launched this week, according to an exclusive report by The Sun UK.
Master’s students and many other postgraduate students will be barred from bringing their family to the UK under the new laws.
According to the UK media outlet, the ban will not apply to PhD students, who are often highly qualified and study studies lasting between 3 and 5 years.
These developments follow the recent spike in net migration to the UK, which has reached a startling 1 million, sparking appeals from Tory MPs.
MPs call on Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to act and address the rising numbers.
In order to combat the surging influx, UK policymakers are expected to propose harsher immigration restrictions on either Tuesday or Wednesday.
According to The Sun, “Rishi Sunak is expected to come out fighting on immigration, pointing out that the figures he inherited date back to the year ending December 2022 – two months after he became Prime Minister.”
“There has been an increase in the number of people coming to Britain on the back of a relative’s student visa.”
“In 2018, students brought 135,788 family members to Britain, nine times more than in 2019.”
“Last year, 59,053 Nigerian students brought with them over 60,923 relatives.”We must obtain a grip, Tory MP told The Sun on Sunday.
