Migrants to be surveyed about life in the UK

A survey by the UK border Agency will ask between 4,000 and 6,000 new migrants whether they like living in the UK and if the UK immigration system is working properly.

Life in the UK

Migrants will be surveyed on how they view life in the UK.

The UK immigration survey aims to 'explore the perceptions' of a wide range of migrants - including asylum seekers, refugees, economic migrants, foreign students and  UK Family Visa immigrants joining their families in the country.

The face-to-face survey aims to find out  positive and negative experiences of migrants’ life in the UK, how they are using public services, how they are contributing to the UK, and the reasons why they came to the UK.

The report from the survey, including an analysis of key findings, is expected to be delivered in March next year.

The UK Visa Bureau is an independent consulting company specialising in helping people lodge UK Visa applications with the British Embassy.
