Re: Refused British Citizenship due to Deception

Hi foufou, May I ask why your initial application for naturalisation was declined? Hi foufou, Thank for the update. Could you please share what legal advice you've been given - in a generic way of course. Are you going for a judicial review? If so, is this after 90 days have passed since your decisi...

Re: Refused British Citizenship due to Deception

Thanks for the interpretation Siraj, makes sense. I've noticed they deduced the fees (£80) for reconsideration from my debit card on 23/10/15. Hoping they'll resolve it soon. If not resolved in 8 weeks, will initiate the pre action protocol followed by judicial review if necessary. Hi smacky, I thin...

Re: Refused British Citizenship due to Deception

Hi Obie, Not sure what you're referring to as their policy? Do you mean reconsideration in light of new evidence? I didn't submit this part of my naturalisation application (and many other visas before this) as I expected them to know this being the respondents in the case and having issued a visa b...

Re: Refused British Citizenship due to Deception

Hi Obie, Could you please advise on what a "pre action protocol" is? Is it notification of one's intention to pursue a judicial review to the Home Office through a lawyer? If so, can I send that while the application is under reconsideration assuming the decision won't change? Thanks. You should not...

Refused British Citizenship due to Deception

Hi all, I received correspondence from the Home Office stating that my application has been refused. The reason stated is that in 2008, I was served with an IS151A as I was allegedly seeking to gain leave by deception as a student. As such, the Home Secretary deems I do not meet the good character r...

Hi josekumar,
I'm in a similar situation as you. Could you please advise on what you sent? Is it okay to apply using PBS dependant form even though the main applicant has switched from Tier 1 (General) to ILR? Thanks.

As she is currently a PBS dep then she should extend as a PBS dep (click) as you are applying for ILR as a PBS applicant under paragraph 319C (b) (iii) (1), and she will be eligible for ILR after 5 years as a PBS dep.

When did your spouse get leave as a PBS dep and when did she enter the UK.
Thanks for your reply Amber. My wife got her visa stamped on 10/10/12 and she entered the UK 12/11/12.

Thanks for the reply. As I've switched 3 employers in the past 5 years, it'd be abit hard for me to get letters but I do have employment contracts that state annual leave eligibility of 25 days.
Do you think that'll suffice along with bank statements & payslips?

ILR - Evidence of Annual Leave?

All my holidays were paid annual leave. Would my payslips suffice? The payslips don't separately mention holiday pay but the pay is the same as other months during which I haven't been on holiday.
Is that enough evidence?

Tier 1 (General) dependant - "travel by" date?

Hi,
I know people who get spouse visas sponsored by their British spouse have to travel by a certain date.. is there any such restriction for Tier 1 (General) dependants? Do they have to travel within 28 days of the visa being issued or can they travel whenever they want?

Thanks.
