The United Kingdom will soon announce new restrictions that may stop Nigerian students, and other nationalities in the UK studying from bringing their families over.
According to an exclusive report by The Sun UK, the new restriction will be announced this week.
The crackdown will stop masters students and many other post graduates students from bringing family over to the country.
Meanwhile, PhD students, whose courses usually last between 3 and 5 years may be exempted.
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 said to be expected to announce the immigration clampdown on Tuesday or Wednesday.
The Sun reports that, “Rishi Sunak is expected to come out fighting on immigration – pointing out they are figures he inherited as they date back to the year ending December 2022 – two months after he became PM.
“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 had disclosed to the Sun on Sunday.
