UK plans £3,000 ‘security bond’ for high-risk Asians and Africans

Home Secretary Theresa May is reportedly planning to introduce  a controversial scheme forcing visitors from India, Pakistan, Nigeria and “high-risk” countries to pay a “security bond” of £3,000 before they enter the country, Independent.co.uk has reported.

The move is meant to deter people from overstaying their visitor visas.

Those who fail to return home after the expiry of their visas will automatically forfeit the £3,000.

Independent.co.uk reported that in November a pilot scheme will be launched covering selected new arrivals from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nigeria and Ghana, with an eventual view to covering all people coming from those countries.
