iam Friday Feeling – China

China provides the biggest number of new immigrants to the UK, figures have disclosed.

Figures released by the Office for National Statistics disclosed that 40,000 people came to the UK last year from the country, meaning that for the first time China has provided more migrants to Britain than any other nation.

When you are planning to apply for visa from China to UK and vice versa, visa category will vary depending on the length of your stay.

You need £2 million for investment fund if you want to apply for this visa. Evidence of this must be provided!  Other documents you need to provide:

  • a current passport or other valid travel identification;
  • a passport-size coloured photograph;
  • your tuberculosis test results if you’re from a country where you have to take the test.
