English term or phrase: immigration
Before you can come to study in the UK, it is important to know more about immigration procedures.

Normally the translation for "immigration" is "簿チ", but this translation is not accurate here as you don't really "簿チ" (which in English actually means becoming a PR of a new country) to UK.

簿チ


Explanation:
You can still translate it into 簿チ because 簿チ猭 also covers regulations and procedures for non-PR students.

Foreign students are usually holding non-immigrant visas. Even if they do not intend to become PR after they finish their study, it is still advisable for them to know immigration laws and regulations. If they violate some immigration regulations when in school, their study in the country may be terminated immediately.

For example, U.S. immigration regulations specify that foreign students must register as a full time student and take enough credits in each semester. They are not allowed to work off-campus unless approved by the immigration services. If they violate those regulations, they may be deported out of the country. I believe the UK immigration regulations concerning students are similar to those of the United States.

换言之,移民法管着所有的外国人,无论是移民(永久居民)还是非移民,无论是合法入境者还是非法入境者。

immigrate: come as a settler (to/into another country), not as a tourist or visitors
naturalize (入国籍): To grant full citizenship to (one of foreign birth).(牛津字典)

immigrate is not equal to naturalize

“ immigrate” is not equal to “naturalize”。

移民


Explanation:
In your context, this should refer to the general procedures for becoming a resident.

入境is more focused on physical entrance, not the legal procedures one has to go through, including applications and getting approval.

Example sentence(s):
  • imigration procedures in USA are very complicated
  • 美国移民手续非常繁琐
