All the documents you send to the Home Office must be original paper documents. Emails, photocopies, scans and faxes are all unacceptable.
If any of your documents are not in English then in addition to sending the original document you must also include an original official translation that has been signed and dated by an authorised translator and includes their contact details and credentials and a confirmation that it is an accurate translation of the original document.
If you are a national of any of the countries listed by the Home Office as low-risk and you are applying from your home country or the UK you do not need to send your finance documents nor your course certificates that were assessed to give you the offer of your place on your course.
(You still need to meet and evidence the UKVI's English language requirements and academic progress requirements.)
On the 06 July 2018 this list changed and the following countries were added:Bahrain, Cambodia, China, The Dominican Republic, Indonesia, Kuwait, The Maldives, Mexico, Serbia, Thailand, Macau SAR.
Oman was removed from the list and is no longer be a low-risk country.
After they receive your application the Home Office may still contact you and ask for your documents. The finance documents must have the required money for the 28 days before you submitted your visa application. If you cannot provide them in the time they give you to send them, then your application will be refused.
If you have chosen to attend an appointment with the Home Office we recommend that you have your finance documents and course certificates with you, as you may be asked for them.
You only need this if you will be studying or researching one of the subjects in the Academic Technology Approval Scheme ( ATAS). The subjects on the ATAS list are in science, engineering and technology.
Read the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) information to find out exactly which courses require an ATAS and how to apply for it. If you need an ATAS certificate you must get this before you can apply before your visa.
If you have any questions please email ATAS@brookes.ac.uk
If you need to register with the police you will need to send an up to date registration certificate with your visa application.
