Britain said on Tuesday it would remove the right for some international students to bring dependants into the country, as it aims to bring down overall migration levels.

"We expect this package to have a tangible impact on net migration," Britain's interior minister said in a statement.

"Taken together with the easing of temporary factors, we expect net migration to fall to pre-pandemic levels in the medium term."
