Visa Information for San Marino
Immigration summary for nationals of San Marino
The immigration summary below is for nationals of San Marino applying from their home country. If you are a national of another country but living in San Marino, please contact your local visa application centre for further advice or refer to the UK Visa and Immigration website. The information provided should be used as guidance only. It has been taken from the UK Visas and Immigration website, which should be referred to in all immigration matters.
Please note from 31 July 2015, individuals applying from San Marino for UK entry clearance of more than 6 months duration will no longer receive a visa vignette (sticker) inside their passport. Successful visa applicants will instead be issued with an official Home Office decision letter and their passport endorsed with a single-entry travel visa valid for 30 days which should be used to enter the UK. After arriving in the UK individuals will be required to collect a biometric residence card which features the full length of your visa.
When completing the Tier 4 (General) Student online application, you will be asked to provide an approximate date of travel and the postal code for the address where you will stay once in the UK. Your CAS will contain information as to how to use the ACL code to have your BRP card delivered to the University of Warwick (if you do not use the code, your BRP card will be delivered to a designated Post Office nearest to the post code provided). Your 30-day travel visa will be valid 7 days before the 'expected date of travel' you put on your visa application form, and you can arrive in the UK up to 1 month prior to your course start date. The Home Office decision letter will provide information on the full length of your visa, and details of where to collect the residence permit. You should carry this letter in hand luggage when you travel to the UK.
You can find more information about how to prepare for a Tier 4 visa application, including how to complete the online application form, what documents to prepare, and what documents to submit here: www.warwick.ac.uk/immigration/tier4
Is a visa required?
If you want to study in the UK, you must obtain a Tier 4 visa under the points-based system before you travel here.
Is a Tuberculosis (TB) certificate required?
No, not required.
Am I considered a ‘low risk’ national by the UK Home Office?
No, you are not considered a 'low risk' national by the Home Office UKVI and so you should submit full documentation in support of a Tier 4 visa application (unless you are eligible for 'Tier 4 Pilot Scheme'- see separate section).
Will I need to have a credibility interview?
You may be asked to attend a short interview or take part in a telephone interview which will focus on your reasons for coming to the UK; this is known as a credibility interview. If asked to attend an interview you will be offered the first available interview date. The interview is usually conducted at the Visa Application Centre via Skype with an officer in the UK. A report of the interview will be sent to the visa officer who will consider it alongside your visa application and supporting documents.
Are you applying with dependants?
If you are considering bringing your family to Warwick, you should read this guidance www.warwick.ac.uk/immigration/dependants/
If you require further guidance or information, including advice on what to do if your visa is refused, please see www.warwick.ac.uk/immigration
