Visa Information for Thailand
Immigration summary for nationals of Thailand
The immigration summary below is for nationals of Thailand applying from their home country. If you are a national of another country but living in Thailand, 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.
When completing the Student visa 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 Student 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 Student visa under the points-based system before you travel here.
Is a Tuberculosis (TB) certificate required?
A valid medical certificate showing the holder is clear of TB is required. For a list of approved medical practitioners, please see www.gov.uk/tb-test-visa
If you have been in the UK for more than six months holding a student visa and are returning to your home country and applying for a Student visa while there, as long as you are not in that country for more than six months, you do not need to take a TB test. For example, if you have just completed a 3-year undergraduate degree in the UK in June 2018 and are going home over the summer holidays and applying for a Student visa before returning to the UK for the new term starting September 2018, you will not require a TB test. You should explain on the Student visa application form why you don't require a TB test, and ensure that your passport contains immigration stamps as evidence of this.
Am I considered a ‘low risk’ national by the UK Home Office?
Yes. Low risk nationals applying for a Student visa from their country of nationality (or in the UK) are not required to submit evidence of English language certificate, academic qualification, financial evidence and evidence of previous UK study (if any). You should, however, still prepare these documents in the event that they are requested by the Home Office UKVI. Please find more information here.
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
