Please, is it possible to withdraw cash from the atm over there using your Gtbank dollar Master card without any restriction?

PS: I already have the dollar master card and I don't want to collect pounds master card because of the maintenance fee I'll be paying for the two.

Possible? Definitely.
Wise? No.
First of all, the USD/GBP exchange rate that will be used will be against you. Your USD will lose heavy against the GBP.
Secondly, GTB would still charge you $3 (I think) for every ATM withdrawal.
2 options, go ahead with the above OR sell your USD while in Nigeria and then buy GBP. When you arrive here, you open a bank account and deposit.

Either way, you will definitely lose money exchanging USD for GBP. But you can choose your poison.

Or you just collect the $$ at official rate and change when you get to the UK

Not easy to dispose of large quantity of physical $$ in the UK.

If you can get a sterling card, then convert your money to sterling, take the hit, get a sterling card, and move on.

Fact: the banks will make money off you because this is what they are set up to do once you move money through them. All you can do is limit how much they hit you for, not eliminate it entirely.

So, is it possible to convert the $$ to GBP and put it in my £ dorm account and when I get to UK, I can transfer it to any bank I open? Because I don't want to go with plenty cash at hand.

Does the UKVI recognize affidavits for name discrepancies.

Say degree certificate carries HILLARY which ua wrong but passport carries HILARY which is right.
Would an affidavit be okay for this?

£10,000 is the physical cash limit that u don't need to declare. So it's not illegal to carry more, you just have to declare.
I have traveled with more than that and i didn't declare.

hi guys, I have a question about the 28 days proof of funds required for student visa application. If I've had the complete funds to show since the 30th of October, is it ok if I printed it out yesterday ( 27th of November)? Does the first day also count (30th of last month) and is it ok if it's assumed I printed it out on the 28th day? Someone with knowledge on this, please answer me, would be highly appreciative. Thanks in advance

the UKVI requires students to either be sponsored by a pare/legal guardian, a financial sponsor and self. So is it ok if I am receiving money for my course from a sibling (paid into my own account), does this count as self sponsorship? If my program is for 2 years, would I also be asked how I intend paying for the 2nd year based on this?

Print from the day after because it's the 1st day of the count. Oct 31st - Nov 28 is good.

Yes, it's okay and it counts as self-sponsorship. If you're interviewed and asked about the source of your funds, just say the truth.
You might or might not be asked about the 2nd year's fees but it all depends on your answers to the interviewer/ECO's questions. Note that you're not required to show the 2nd year's fees in your account, just the 1st year (shown on your CAS) + maintenance.

Pls someone should answer me. Pls after paying visa fees will I still pay for submission fee. Pls I dont understand. Which one is submission fee again for visiting and students visa?
Re: Uk Student Visa/tier 4 Pbs - Your Questions Answered Part 4 by mimilyrics: 8:52pm On Nov 28, 2020
There's no submission fee. You only pay an extra N11,700 to the VAC for help to scan and upload your documents.
If you choose to upload the documents by yourself, you won't be paying other fee except you use VI where you've got to pay about £55 for user pay fee.

The option to use self-upload or the assisted service (help with upload and submission) is available on TLS site only after you submit your application and pay your visa fee on the .Gov.uk website.

If you also choose to select a prime time or flexi appointment or courier service for your passport delivery, you'll need to pay for them.

I got admitted to Glasgow Caledonian University and Robert Gordon University. I was able to defer to September 2021. Please are post graduate students in scotland eligible for the 2 years post study permit?
I plan to get some IT certifications like comptia, checkpoint and palo alto here before I start my application process. My first degree is petroleum engineering however I was admitted for Energy management. When I read the post of the guy who said healthcare is the moving sector at the moment, I felt a bit discouraged. Please can anyone tell me if any of these fields are lucrative or if my plans are valid? My people keep insisting on Canada but I have a refusal there already and I don't feel like trying again. I am having a hard time convincing them to accept the scotland offer because they feel UK can switch up and send us back. I really need advice. thank you
