There is no appeal process for refused citizenship applications. There is only a request for reconsideration, costing almost £380 and no time limit to be completed.
Actually a lot of cases get refused because of unlawful entry as well. And the HO can pick up the wrong doing anytime. I think the HO did have prove they were not genuinely for studying as in the decision letter also clearly mentioned that. I think they picked this up by the interview record when they applied asylum....
If they had successfully completed their PhDs in the UK, then it would be difficult for the Home Office to claim that they were not genuine students in the UK.
Thanks, I gather the HO refused your case based on good character, but what was their reason(s) saying that?babe_khyber wrote: ↑Fri Jul 20, 2018 8:17 pmIts up to you if you want to apply reconsideration request but in my personal point of view it is just a game of money and wast of time. I was refused in the beginning of 2016 and request for reconsideration but unfortunately after 18 months latter received again refused with attention for new application. Even durring my initial application the home office sent letter to our MP confirm any investigation has been completed and confirmed the home office didn't revealed any cause of concern about his good character. The appliy Pre Action Protocol and the home office didn't respond within 14 days that is why I decided to take the matter to high court and appliy for Judicial review application for Permission in January 2018 and still waiting for Permission. The home office reply to pre action letter last month instead of 14 day.
Don't wast money and time if you want to argument then take the matter to court for JR there is no proper appeal right.
