i was searching and found this intresting so commenting hope i'm not interrrupting the topic. I'm trying to have a bit of clarity and understading how this works ?
i'm in UK since 2010, and completed 10 years in March 200. i recently applied for ILR 10 years LR, but my application was refused with Appeal Right. in deciosion ' mentioned that when my appliaction for Tier1 Ent, which was submitted in Dec 2016 and then refused in March 2017 with Right of AR refused so at that time my 3C broke. .
I have a question regarding to this sennerio that after the application and AR refused , i applied for fresh Tier1 Application within 14 days , which then Granted after 2 years long wait in April 2019. Hence i reguralise my stay after refusal ! ,
but still my application has been refused for 10 yrs LR .... and now Lodged the appeal waiting for court reply.
recent case of Hoque and Ors ... according to that i have a Bookended Gap which can be ignored, Zimba kindly could you guide me in this prespective wether UKVI is right or I have a merit in case ?
i have valid leave of Tier1 until 2022.
