World famous Indian musician Ustad Amjad Ali Khan will now be able to play at his concert scheduled for September 2016. Labour MP Keith Vaz assisted Amjad Ali Khan during his second visa application.
“I am delighted that Amjad Ali Khan’s visa has now been granted. Britain adores the music of Amjad Ali Khan and I am so pleased we will be able to hear it after all,” Keith Vaz said.
“I want to thank the staff at the British High Commission in New Delhi for dealing with this issue promptly once the technical problem had been identified.
“We need a long hard look at the immigration rules so that they are seen to encourage Indian people to visit and work in the UK. This is especially so after Brexit. The UK must always be seen to be open to the rest of the world.”
