UK immigration test book tops the sales charts
Immigrants hoping to pass the UK citizenship test have resulted in the British Home Office's 'Life in the UK Test' study guide becoming an unexpected best-seller.
It suprised publishers and book-sellers alike by becoming the bestselling political book of the year, selling over 80,000 copies to UK immigration hopefuls.
Further results have shown that if you combine the official guide's sales with those of a further five manuals dedicated on how to pass the test, they account for one third of the total spending on political books in the country, with a total of over 138,000 sales.
The news comes along with news that migration to the UK is at its highest level for almost 50 years, thanks to citizens of the new EU member states arriving in Britain. Many of these migrants will now be applying for UK residency or citizenship.
However, the book's boost in sales does reflect the new UK immigration levels, giving clear evidence that the majority of migrants are adhering to the government's efforts to better integrate new arrivals to the UK.
Anyone interested in applying for UK residency or citizenship should request a call from a qualified UK Visa Bureau migration consultant to see if they are eligible, or call direct on Freephone 0800 043 7011. Alternatively, HSMP visa hopefuls should try taking the HSMP online assessment.
