You would have to apply for the visa in nigeria as a visitor you would need to have a return ticket booked plus enough money to support yourself while in the uk so if you were coming for a week then at least £500 to show you can pay for accomadation and food etc the fact you are studing in poland would also help your application as shows intent to leave

They are putting in measures so people from troublesome countries have to pay a bond upon entering. Enjoy Christmas in Poland.

Tens of thousands of visitors from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nigeria will be forced to pay a £3,000 bond to be allowed to enter Britain.They will only get the money back once they leave the country in a bid to end abuse of the visa system.Home Secretary Theresa May said the intention was to make the immigration system more 'selective' and deter people from 'overstaying' once their visitor visa has expired. In the long-term, she hopes to extend the Australian-style bond scheme to also include foreign workers and students.

good luck with that the uk immigration wont care about if its cost effective for you you need the visa issued in your home country so it can be added to your passport

Won't work. They'll just regard it as a (very expensive) price for a visa.

The UK seems to have lost all control of their borders. You want fewer people overstaying their visas then stop giving out visas (or kick overstayers out with no hearing or chance at appeal). Nothing else will work.

It's an interesting idea, but it won't put off the wrong sort of people and will put off those who just want to have a better life.

Seems so. Despite the high visibility controls and utter inflexibility in some respect (for instance, Eurostar) - the situation seems to be absolutely chaotic. They're using a computer system that is 20 years old - meanwhile Schengen uses a computer system that is almost brand new.

Its not even that expensive. Try getting a green card to the states. Now thats expensive. Costs circa 10, 000 euro and thats if the company knows what they are doing. The ambitous and skilled will make that back in no time. The moochers and scammers wont, so they hit Europe. Just look at all the non EU students that come on here looking for advice. Clowns are borderline literate.

Illegals will keep hitting Europe until we body some of them. Its not nice. In fact, its absolutely horrid. But man the Greek/Spain/Italian entrances into Europe with armed militia that will fire upon illegal aliens trying to make their way in. 100 bodies and the illegal immigration problem shall cease. Put it this way, more than that will drown if we continue on doing what we are doing. It would save lifes in the long run.

No, just ship them back to the farthest non-Schengen border (or set up a processing camp in say..... Morocco or Turkey) where "asylum seekers" are sent to have their cases examined. That should do a fairly good job of weeding out the legitimate refugees from the purely "economic" (read "welfare") immigrants who have no intention or ability to actually provide anything of value to their destination countries.
