UK home secretary plans to introduce 'British values' test for visitor visas

Theresa May intends to introduce ‘British Values’ for traveler visas

Travelers from other countries who are looking to come to UK for the purpose of study, work or to attend business conferences here would need to prove that they held a high regard for ‘’British values’’. They would make these Conservative proposals to be a part of any of the above visa applications. This plan was put forth by the British home secretary, Theresa May and would work on the government’s strategy to counter extremism. An outline of the report implies that the controls at the border are being strengthened to obstruct the passage of overseas nationals who are inclined to radicalize others.

Those individuals who would like to arrive in UK for studying, working or visiting reasons and also those seeking should follow and give importance to the British values as long as they stay in the country. These values would become an indispensable part of the visa application process. It is yet unclear how the authorities will incorporate these values into force along with the visa rules. These values uphold the democracy rule of law which includes mutual respect and religious tolerance as well as individual freedom.
