A student seeking a UK visa to attend a conference in the UK has finally become successful, thanks to a media uproar. Two international students in Amsterdam University from Turkey and Bosnia were unsuccessful at gaining this visa. UK Immigration officials suspected that they would remain in the UK after the event, their return tickets, notwithstanding. One of these students submitted some of his travel documents late while the other's Netherlands student visa will only be valid until December. While one gave up on the visa pursuit, the other was later called by the UK Home Office to provide more information. She was subsequently directed to go to the immigration service to have her passport stamped. She told the BBC in an interview that she was excited to get the visa and that she was sure it was because of the attention she got from the media. The academic conference in question was organized by the psychology department of Glasgow University. The lucky student, NadzaDzinalija, 21 expressed her worry that the initial rejection could taint her file for visa applications in the future. She was one of 29 students who wanted to attend the conference.
