Student landing at Airport without Accommodation booked

Post by Usmnababar28 » Tue Sep 11, 2018 12:32 pm

I'll be flying to UK on 13th of September, I've not booked the accommodation yet because I want to view the room before moving in. I'll be staying at my uncle's (UK National) home in London for couple of days then I'll move to Colchester where i'll find the accommodation & my uncle would help me finding the place.


What should I say to IO ? During Visa interview I said that I'll be staying at University's accommodation but unfortunately I couldn't find the place. My course start date is 4th of October. Kindly help

You are lucky that they have granted you the visa application without the accommodation sorted out. Just tell them that you will be living with your Uncle who will help you find an appropriate accommodation for you whilst your there. Good luck.

They are very highly unlikely to ask. If they do, just tell them your plans as you have explained them here.

Where are you getting this requirement from? It is nonsense.

To be clear, there is no requirement to have housing in place, either when applying for the visa or when arriving in the UK. The only housing-related requirement is that you have enough money to pay for your housing.
People posting here are well-meaning, but they may also be unqualified and unregulated. I do not give immigration advice, just refer to Immigration Rules, guidance, other online content and to your sponsor to help you answer your question.
