Japa: UK Moves To Ban Nigerian and other Students From Travelling With Families

The United Kingdom is set to announce new restrictions that will stop Nigerian students and other nationalities studying in the UK from travelling with their families.

 

According to a report by The Sun UK, the restrictions will be announced next week.

 

The ban will affect all masters students and postgraduates.

The Sun UK says foreign students brought over 135,000 family members to Britain in 2022 – nine times more than in 2019. 

 

Last year, 59,053 Nigerian students accounted for nearly 70,000 relatives. 

 

This is the highest increase in the number of dependants accompanying persons with study visas for the year ending in June 2022.

 

The ban will not apply to PhD students, whose courses usually last between 3 and 5 years and are very highly skilled.
