As the title indicates, after reviewing and filing my T4 visa application, I noticed that under the Documents section, there was an invitation that said, “Check here to confirm that you are the national of a differentiation agreement and that you wish to apply under this agreement,” showing that I chose “no” although I am a Canadian citizen and that I plan to use the differentiation agreement. The Level 4 differentiation system allows applicants from low-risk countries defined in Schedule H of the Immigration Regulation to provide fewer supporting documentation of their application. When an applicant is subject to the jurisdiction of the differentiation regime, he or she is generally not required to submit a document (see next section). However, applicants must continue to have the necessary documentation, as UKVI reserves the right to request evidence from the applicants. The list of differentiated nationals: if you are exempt from the provision of a document – or a group of documents – under the UKVI differentiation scheme, the guidelines expressly state this. As a general rule, applicants meeting the requirements of differentiation are not required to submit: nationals of certain countries are not required to provide proof of their qualifications or money when applying for a student visa. UKVI calls this the “differentiation agreement” for “low-risk students.” Under the differentiation procedures, all Level 4 applicants still have to submit their application: students eligible for differentiation are not required to provide proof of money with their initial visa application. Remember that there are a number of other documents required for visa applications, and you must always provide them. Our list of documents contains all the details. I don`t know how I missed this section, but does anyone know if it won`t lure me into the differentiation agreement if my app contains it? I`ve already scanned, posted and sent my passport, but I didn`t take care of my finances because I thought I didn`t need it unless I wanted to. Could you reject me in general or will they only ask for the documents? If you are eligible for differentiation schemes, one of your creditors is entitled to differentiation as long as it is: documents that are not required by the differentiation regimes updated on 14 October 2020, UK Visas – Immigration (UKVI), a department of the Ministry of the Interior, have set up differentiation systems for students of certain nationalities that they consider to be low risk.
Students can qualify for the differentiation of student visas, as they are nationals of one of the low-risk countries listed in the ST 22.1 immigration rules (see below for the list).
