    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!

      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?
