Through this awareness campaign, we are sharing tips and advice to all prospective UK visa applicants on what types of visas to apply for, what documents we require, and the likely turnaround times.” “We have also invited the applicants to send us their questions, via Facebook and Twitter, for our visas and immigration team to answer during a Q/A session on Friday, July 25,” he added. “There are many myths surrounding the UK visa application process. Through this guide for the students and the overall awareness campaign, we aim to dispel these and signpost to applicants, all the information they need to submit an application,” he said.
