The United Kingdom is set to announce new restrictions that will likely stop Nigerian students and other nationalities studying in the UK from bringing their families over.
According to a report, the crackdown will be announced this week, and it will see all master’s students and many other post-graduates banned from bringing families over.
However, the ban will not apply to Ph.D. students, whose courses usually last between three and five years and are highly skilled.
This follows the reports that net migration into the UK has skyrocketed to 1 million, with Tory MPs asking the Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, “to get a grip on the rocketing numbers.”
To get a hold of the climbing numbers, UK ministers are expected to announce the immigration clampdown on Tuesday or Wednesday.
“There has been an explosion in the number of people coming to Britain piggybacking on their relative’s student visa.
“Students brought 135,788 family members to Britain last year – nine times more than in 2019.
“Last year, 59,053 Nigerian students brought over 60,923 relatives. We have got to get a grip,” a Tory MP told The Sun on Sunday.
