The judge found that there was insufficient evidence before her to establish that she cares for her grandchildren on a regular basis. Such care may be classed as work and the appellant, by terms of her current leave to remain in this country, is prohibited from work. While she may not receive payment for caring for the children, she is remunerated by being provided with accommodation free of charge and being maintained by her daughter free of charge. The letter from Emmanuel Kondonu indicated that he is available to provide care for the children in her absence and that childcare is available to the eldest child, at least, during the day. The appellant has family ties to Ghana where her husband and other family members reside. She arrived in this country on 26 December 2011 and therefore has not been in this country for any substantial length of time. She has spent 54 years in Ghana prior to this. The two children were born prior to her arrival and there is no indication her daughter was unable to manage these children prior to her mother’s arrival.

The decision is as follows
i have refused your application for visit visa because purpose of visit to provide childcare for your sons children she is expecting a third child during your proposed visit. however it would appear that this amount to employment. which is prohibited for visitors. i am therefore not satisfied that you are a genuine visitor. your application has been refused under paragraph V4.2(d) and v4.5(a) of the immigration rules.
