Tier 4 to replace old regulations

5 March 2009

The UK Border Agency just announced to introduce a new immigration system for students from 31 March 2009 on.

The points-based immigration system Tier 4 will then replace the old form and criteria for students who want to come to the UK. Any applications on and after this day will be considered under Tier 4.

The UK Border Agency will therefore only accept student applications made using the correct new Tier 4 application form and guidance. However, in order for students and sponsors to prepare for the new regulations, a draft version of Tier 4 has been put online. A final version of the form and guidance will also be published some time in advance of 31 March 2009.

When this has happened, the UK Border Agency will contact all their customers with an appointment at the PEO on or after this day, if they hold an accurate mobile telephone number. Thus, anyone who is affected by the changes should check if the contact details are up-to-date.
