And i am suspended permanently and can not stay in the UK. when i heard this i contacted my college and they said they have informed the UK border agency so they can not do anything about it.

You have only received a letter stating that the college has suspended you correct?

You haven't received any other correspondence from the UKBA regarding a ban, yes?

I haven't received Letter from UKboader agency that time, but its one year ago. i am not longer in contact with my friend who lived with me in london, he also quit that place. so i am not sure they have sent any letter or not.

Thanks for your reply.

The fact that your previous sponsor college suspended you does not meant that you are banned from applying to other colleges for sponsorship. It just means that your previous visa is now invalid because the college is no longer willing to sponsor you.

Obviously you will have to explain the situation to the new colleges you apply to and when the time comes that you are ready to apply to the UKBA for a new visa you will have to make them aware of what has happened. When you apply to the UKBA you will have to substantiate what you are saying to them so I should attempt to get documentary evidence of your father’s condition at the time so that they UKBA will be able to tell that you left for a understandable and valid reason. Provided you do this you should be fine though.

UK immigration authorities do not use exit stamp, i am wondering that maybe they believe that i am living in the UK illegal? is there any way i can check my current status? or should i contact UKBA? or maybe i shouldn't just simply apply with the college and tell them the whole story?
Expert:  Thomas replied 5 years ago.

You will have to show the UKBA that you left by producing your flight tickets and stating that you did not receive an exit stamp. It wouldn't hurt to write to them now so that they have something on record and you can say that you kept them up to date with the change in your circumstances.

If the college has suspended you then they will have already informed the UKBA so your status will be that you have now had your visa curtailed by provided you can prove what you are saying about having to leave with documentary evidence then there should be no reason why you cannot apply again to another college and receive a new visa from the UKBA.
