Capita says 8,000 potential illegal visa 'overstayers' have left UK.


More than 8,000 people previously thought to have illegally overstayed their visa have, in fact, left the UK, Capita has revealed.

In September 2012 the UK Border Agency awarded the services company a contract worth up to £40m to find more than 150,000 missing people.

By the end of March, Capita told UKBA 8,328 of them had left the UK and it had managed to contact a further 5,250.

The government said it was "pleased" with progress made so far.

No doubt one of these is my ex-lodger - previously (comedy gold) :

Immigration salary debate : Mark Harper vs Keith Vaz.

Immigration husband’s battle.


A cabbie who claims he cannot safely earn the £18,600 needed to bring his wife to the UK from Pakistan is heading to Westminster for talks next week.

Last week we reported on Shelley Hornby-Baaouani, who is fighting to bring her husband to the UK to join her and their three month old son Rayan

And this week Mohammed Malik, who is in a similar situation came forward to claim that the financial requirement for couples is far too high and that he is prepared to fight for a change in the rules.

He said: “All I want is for my wife to come here and live with me. We don’t want any benefits.”
