Are you asking whether you should leave your money behind in naira in Nigeria while you travel to the UK without converting it to sterling?
If so, the answer is no.
Open a domiciliary account, convert to sterling and wire most or all of it as you prefer to TransferWise.

Please, is $100 spending limit doesn't affect DORM ACCOUNT? I have been thinking about the best way to have the money when someone enters UK

Madam go to Birmingham to avoid stories that touch... Although the UK isn't as strict as the US in matters like this, it is unwise to give your village people ammunition to phaya!

Are you saying someone is not allowed to go beyond his University city? Please explain.

Hello Everyone, please I need your help. I’m to resume at University if Wolverhampton this month, I have already gotten my tier 4 visa . The closest airport to Wolverhampton is at Birmingham (which is expensive). I want to know if I can fly to london instead and observe the 14 day quarantine with my family there. I don’t want any issues with immigration. Any insights please?

Given that there is a requirement to 14 days quarantine i would say this should be fine.......... What do you mean family ?, immediate family or very far extended family . If it immediate family then hope you declared this on your visa application ??,. if you did then even better and this should be fine

Yes u can fly to london but Birmingham airport is still the best option for you if u ask me.

There’s a direct train from Birmingham airport to Wolverhampton train station which is just 30-40mins. It is less stressful and cheaper compared to coming from Heathrow airport.

Also, if u add the cost of train from london to wolves to your flight ticket, it will almost equal direct flight to Birmingham.

The adv the london route have for you is that you said you have family there, so you can rest for few days before travelling down to the West Midlands.

Have you sorted accommodation in wolves yet?

Thank you very much, yes, I have booked the student accomodation.

Well........!

1)hope you stated in your application that you have a family there(London) or at least that reality is coherent with what you filled in the form. Even at that, you must have a valid back up explanation why you are going to London

2) If its just cos of the expenses you are considering, I think its better to bear the expenses of going via the nearest airport to your destination. In my own case, my terminus was at my destination(Manchester) I had a connecting flight from LON to MAN. from Manchester airport, we still had to take a train to the city before taking private vehicle home. My Luggage which was a plastic box was all broken and scattered by the time I received it at the airport. It wasn't a joke moving it with all the wheels lost and the bag itself broken. You can imagine if I wasn't going straight to destination with that ordeal. Twas still crazy even though I had someone to come and pick me.

On the other hand, if your family's place its not a long journey from the airport it could be a better option for you as you might be able to catch your breath from the trip for the 14 days of quarantine and then rearrange for your journey to final destination

Just my opinion and all the best
Thank you very much.
By family, I mean my Aunt (who by the way doesn't bear my surname), so I didn't mention her in my application.
She is offering to come pick me up at the airport and let me observe the 14 day self isolation at hers.

In my application I stated that I have a family in the UK. But I also stated I would be renting a place to stay. I ticked I would not be staying with family. If I decide to stay with the family I stated on my application, for my quarantine, would this be an issue? Any advise from someone with same experience would be appreciated.

1. For an applicant who is counting 28 days on his/her parent’s account is it necessary that transactions happen on the account during the 28 day period?

2. Must there be withdrawals and deposits during the 28 day period?

3. What if there are no withdrawals and deposits and the total required funds is in surplus does it in anyway affect chances of getting a the Tier 4 visa?

Gurus in the house I forward to your responses

Wow thank you so much for this, I deeply appreciate.

Download Trainline app and National Express app and use your expected arrival dates to get more accurate timings.

See attached screenshots on some options and associated costs to Coventry. The train station is about 10-20 mins from campus.
1st screenshot is from National Express, 2nd and 3rd screenshots are from Google maps while the 4th screenshot is from Trainline.

It doesn't affect the outcome of your application but in my opinion, if you have not submitted already, do some transactions on the account even if its just a transaction on the day u want to print, just so the 28days statement isn't blank.

Victory at last!!!

I have been here reading quietly and learning from various discussions.

After been sent back to get another passport because the old one was defaced because it once fell inside water,
14th sept, Biometrics, paid for priority.
Didn’t receive any update from them and after like 10 working days I did the paid mail and call and all they told me was that my application was at DMC and would be decided and I should hold on till 15th day before contacting them again, even after paying for priority o.
On Oct 1st I got decision mail which was the first mail gotten from them, I was at TLS on Friday to fund out if it was there but wasn’t available.
Then I noticed my tracker moved to Transferred to VAC, so I knew the wait was coming to an end, I got to TLS yesterday 5th around past 12:00, they still said it wasn’t ready, so hung around and tracked again then I saw received by VAC, I immediately dashed inside and picked it up this time, and got my passport with visa in it, I can’t thank God enough because I have gone through alot in this life, the waiting time was pathetic, I learned how to fast for the first time in my life, it became more scary because I actually paid for priority and it didn’t come as expected and I saw people getting within 4 days. May God’s name be praised, I pray all expecting their own will also testify soon, especially @Lawrence6, I feel your pain bro.

I don’t see a problem with this. 14 days on your own in a new city is long. Chill with your aunt....her picking you up makes things easier - no dragging suitcases on the train and what not. After the two weeks you can find your way to Wolverhampton.

You can quarantine at a friend’s so I don’t see why you need to have mentioned them in your visa application.
