Paywall UK: Nick Clegg to announce tough new regime on visas
Andrew GriceForeigners visiting Britain from certain countries will have to put up “security bonds” costing thousands of pounds to deter them from overstaying their visas, under new proposals.
Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister, will today announce plans to bring in the Australian-style deposits for visitors from “high risk” countries, to be repaid when they leave the UK.
Although a list of such nations has not yet been drawn up by the UK Border Agency (UKBA), it is expected to include Pakistan, other countries in the Indian sub-continent and some in the Middle East. The move could run into controversy if the list does not include “white Commonwealth” nations.
