Information and support for students from Afghanistan

The UK Home Office (UKVI) has launched a crisis line. It will be open all day every day for students and others in Afghanistan who are trying to apply for immigration permission and /or travel to the UK. If you call this line, you will be asked to give your key details, including your full name and date of birth, which will be passed to UKVI for triage and case working.

This source of help is available to a range of people, including students, people applying for immigration permission as a student and graduates who received a Chevening scholarship.

For full details, including eligibility, the crisis line number and the type of help and information you will receive, see: Support for British and non-British nationals in Afghanistan

UKCISA have also made useful webpages for students from Afghanistan - please see the UKCISA webpages here for more information.

Please contact us at ISS with any queries you may have about applying for a Student visa, or any other immigration queries.
