Student non-visas

Why bother issuing student visas when they can expire without consequence!?!

Are immigration officers allowed to choose which parts of Government legislation they wish to enforce!?!

"He [Border and Immigration Agency, director of enforcement Jonathan Lindley] said the policy on dealing with out-of-time applications was currently under review and asked that officers did not proceed with enforcing any student refusal cases unless "deemed to be a priority".

PS Is that better Mark!?!

That's more like it!

Fuss over nothing maybe. If one looks at the case and the memo, I can't see that it says overstaying students should never be deported, simply that a short delay in getting a valid application in in time hardly merits it.

Xoggoth, how about a short delay of more than a few days? Is one week too short!?!

In april 2008 I decide to have a trip to Australia with my family member. I want to know visas information. Can any one, let me know.
