Identity Cards for foreign nationals

2 Nov 2009 The UKBA has issued more than 100,000 identity cards for foreign nationals, majority of which are to migrants extending their stay as students or spouses.

If regulations laid down this week are approved by the Govt then migrants from outside the EEA will be issued with cards when they extend their permissions to stay for more than six months under Tier 2 of the Points Based System. This means they will need to have their biometrics (fingerprints and photograph) as part of their application to stay.
