Human Recognition Systems has successfully deployed its identity registration platform, MTrust, for a new education sector client to help ensure compliance with the UK Border Agency’s Tier 4 regulations for international student sponsorship.
MTrust is a portable system with an integrated fingerprint reader, and the data captured on enrollment is used solely for the purpose of registering an identity within the MTrust platform and is not shared with external systems.
Institutions must remain aware of attendance for Tier 4 students, as the failure to monitor their attendance can result in substantial financial penalties in addition to the risk of the institution having their sponsorship license for international students revoked.
The UKBA and Border Force has recently tendered for an integrated border security system, ComputerWeekly.com reports.
In December, the UKBA changed its requirements for biometric residence permits for those looking to stay in the UK for more than 6 months.
The UKBA has been rolling out biometric residents permits to different visa categories over the last four years and suggests these new measures will help to combat illegal immigration, abuse of the immigration system and the misuse of public funds.
As reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, Human Recognition Systems recently secured new contracts for the London Olympic Park, and Athletes Village.
