Re-Entry in the UK with a non-visa visitor after the end of course before the end of Tier 4 (General) student visa validity.

We're waiting for henderik to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Home Office,

I am a Singaporean citizen who has a Tier 4 (General) student visa that expires on 1 November 2016. I ended my course on 1 July 2016 and departed the UK on that day back to Singapore.

I have made plans to visit the UK for a short holiday. I would arrive on 30 October 2016 and would depart on 19 November 2016. I would like to enquire if I would be prevented from entering the UK as a non-visa visitor as my Tier 4 (General) student visa only expires on 1 November 2016.

Yours faithfully,

Henderik

Dear DMC (Croydon),

You have mentioned that my enquiry is "applying or an Re-Entry Clearance Visa from overseas.". This is clearly not the case.

My enquiry is relating to a potential Entry clearance that might arise at the airport upon re-entry into the UK. I intend to re-enter UK as a non-visa national for tourism purposes.

I request you to kindly go through my enquiry again.

Yours sincerely,

Henderik
