Africans Suspicious over UK Visa Policies Print E-mail

A report disclosed that UKBA staff is “unfairly rejecting” African visas. It claims that the UK Border Agency staff from Africa is “acting unfairly” and wrongfully refusing entry to the UK.

According to the BBC News, “chief inspector to the UKBA, John vine, said many visas were incorrectly rejected after employees ‘disregarded or misinterpreted’ evidence.”

He noted that some applicants had been refused for failing to provide information, which was not originally requested.

As reported by the BBC, “Mr. Vine’s inspection ran between May and July 2011, examining the applications handled at four UBA posts in South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya and Croydon, south London – which deals with Algerian-based applications.”

He disclosed claims by UK Embassy Staff in Algeria that visa delays had caused “reputational damage” to Great Britain.
