Nigerians visiting Britain to pay a security bond of 3,000, from November, before they are allowed into Britain
| June 24, 2013
The British Home Secretary is recommending that visitors from "high-risk" countries in Asia and Africa should pay a 3,000 pound security bond before they are allowed into Britain to deter people from overstaying their visitor visas. Visitors aged 18 and over will be required to deposit 3,000 pounds for a six-month visit visa and they will automatically forfeit the 3,000 pounds if they fail to leave Britain before their visas expire. A pilot scheme is to be launched in November covering hundreds of new arrivals from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nigeria and Ghana, and si expected to eventually cover all the citizens of these countries. These six countries are the countries with the highest high levels of abuse among visa applicants, according to the British Home Office. The Home secretary said, "This is the next step in making sure our immigration system is more selective, bringing down net migration from the hundreds of thousands to the tens of thousands while still welcoming the brightest and the best to Britain." "In the long run we�re interested in a system of bonds that deters overstaying and recovers costs if a foreign national has used our public services." Critics of the program say that the move could backfire if other governments retaliate and require British citizens to pay bonds before they are allowed into their countries. They also say enforcing it would be impractical since it would require a new bureaucracy to be created.

One of the fundamental assumptions here is that the brightest individual welcomed into Britain has £3,000 or N750,000 equivalent to deposit. Together with travelling expenses, such a brightest visitor must have at least N1 million to visit Britain.

I do not believe that the target brightest visitor has such a huge sum to part with. In the end, the looters and fraudsters will be the major visitors to Britain. The Home Office may have to prepare for more criminals as visitors. The second is that the Britain assumes that the affected countries are helpless and cannot retaliate. If Britons are restricted by those listed countries, can the British government find them equivalent high payment executive jobs which they enjoy abroad?

God save Nigeria.
