Canada - Government Information/Uk immigeration status lost


Hello Sir Deepak

I am in UK as student visa but 8 months before my college is suspended and closed by UKBA.
So according to UKBA rules I had to take admission in new college within 28 days or I had to leave the country.But I didn't.
My visa on passport is valid till July 2014 but I lost my visa status. According to Ukba I am living here as illegal.
Can I apply for FSWC 2013?
Do I need to go back to my home country(pakistan) or I can apply from UK?
And if I apply for Police clearance certificate in uk?
Do they check my visa status?

Please help me because I am so worried.
No one is giving me satisfactory response in this matter.


Hello Muhammad,

Thank you for your question.

You may request London, UK as processing office, since PR applications for Pakistan nationals are processed there. Should you be unable to show a valid immigration status in UK, your application may receive negative attention from visa office.

I am unable to advise if the UK police authorities will check your immigration status when you apply for a clearance certificate, but presume that they would.

Hope this is useful.

Thank you and Kind Regards

I am a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC), practicing in Ontario for last 9 years. As a member in good standing of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) since its inception, I am committed to uphold the principles of integrity, knowledge and consumer protection. Our advice is based on sound legal provisions and practices, so that the client receives the best value for money. Our advice and assistance covers issues such as (a) permanent residence in Canada, (b) temporary residence (c) maintaining residency (d) reuniting family (e) Canadian citizenship (f) Immigration appeals, and more. We assist people from across the world in all Canadian Immigration matters (economic programs), including Federal Skilled Worker Program, Business Immigration, Work permits, Study permits, Family Class sponsorships, Appeals to the Immigration Appeals Division of IRB, etc. The intention of participating in this forum is to share my knowledge and views on Canadian immigration matters for general scenarios. The answers however, should not be considered as a legal advice, as that involves detailed information of various aspects of the immigrants' profile. People should contact me directly, should they wish to use to obtain a specific legal advice.


Since 2002, I have been working in the field of Canadian Immigration consulting. Prior to going into own practice in late 2003, I worked for an Immigration Consulting organisation in Toronto. My practice covers various areas of economic and family class immigration into Canada. Like I say to my prospective clients, just as there are thousands of ways to find god, there are a no. (over 50) ways to gain immigration to Canada. The trick is to find out the most suitable one for each client. Nevertheless, there are some programs that are more popular. We advise clients on these as well as find innovative immigration solutions for others. I have been an active volunteer with the Canadian Association of Professional Immigration Consultants (CAPIC), since its inception in 2005. After serving the Ontario Chapter for 5 years in Communications Committee, I joined the National Board in 2010. I served as the Director - Membership on the national Board of Directors of CAPIC for a year. I recently retired from the Board of Directors of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC), the regulatory body for Canadian Immigration Consultants, after serving for 1 year.
