    How do you get a visa to be a fishmonger?  To get my visa to work at Oxford U as a researcher I had to show the Home Office proof of my higher degrees, work history, minimum income requirement etc!

      Raj, you must be an Indian and the person who marked your comment up must be ‘white’. Needless to say, I am of Pakistani descent.

      I disagree with you. I’m writing from the US and I would like so much to see such ‘inefficiency’ here.  Ultimately adults in a foreign country should tolerate no disorganization or confusion with regards to their passports, visas or whatever, period the end.  A national government with the attitude that it is not their job to straighten out such an offender’s life for him is a blessing for its citizens; I suppose you say subjects. 
      Remember, in addition, that this particular person is a celebrity who could have had immigration attorneys lining up at his door competing for the privilege of organizing this facet of a celebrities’ life. Who would be looking out for you and me like that in a foreign land? He himself chose not to obtain such a specialist when he KNEW that his record label was counting on him to make appearances. Besides, why should there be any sort of controversy when a government agency fufils its mission?
