Speakers at a seminar held here yesterday said that people who intend to go to the United Kingdom (UK) for study or other purpose should abstain from submitting false or forged documents.
The immigration-related seminar was organised to mark the inaugural ceremony of a new office of Immigration Advisory Service (IAS), a UK-based NGO, here.
IAS chief executive Keith Best presented a paper on 'Latest Development in UK Immigration Law'.
Keith Best, former British MP and a senior immigration specialist, said IAS is the lone non-profit organisation providing free service to clients.
Keith informed that there had been major changes in British immigration laws in recent years. He said the online system of visa application for UK has made visa processing faster.
In Bangladesh, more than 50 per cent visa applications are done from Sylhet division where settlement cases are also too high, he said. Every year, IAS serves 3,000 new clients in Sylhet, he disclosed.
IAS representative in Bangladesh Abdul Hasad Chowdhury conducted the programme while general manager of Sylhet branch of Bangladesh Bank Ahsan Ullah and chief of Grameen Janakalyan Sangsad Jamil Chowdhury addressed.
