Re: British overseas citizen no right to work

Opinion on this? Who is eligible for support? You could be eligible for the Windrush Scheme if you are: a Commonwealth citizen who settled in the UK before 1 January 1973 or has right of abode a child of a Commonwealth citizen parent who settled before 1 January 1973, where you were born in the UK o...

Re: British overseas citizen no right to work

Yes will do.

I’m considering emailing our local MP explaining the situation and outlining the advice on the gov website, maybe she can help or advise?

Re: British overseas citizen no right to work

Ok, if this is correct then I am now totally confused. So because of this observation in his passport this gives him indefinite leave to enter which gives him the same rights as indefinite leave to remain? And he doesn’t have to apply for this? He has been a permanent resident since 1978 so this sti...

Re: British overseas citizen no right to work

I’ve just re-read your last post and so I’m clear on this, applying for settled status is a different application to ILR? But means the same?

Re: British overseas citizen no right to work

Would a statement clarifying Cypriot citizenship from birth from the Cyprus high commission be enough without a Cypriot passport? As obtaining a passport could take up to 3 months and we were going to apply for ILR through the priority service.

Re: British overseas citizen no right to work

Just one more thing :?

After everything I’ve explained, do you think there would be any issues if he applied for ILR?

Re: British overseas citizen no right to work

We have arranged to speak to an immigration expert tomorrow and yes I am happy to post what they advise on here.

We are just trying to get our heads around all the possible ways we can fix this and your input is much appreciated. You have explained things in a way that I can understand.

Re: British overseas citizen no right to work

When I research this observation there is a footnote saying, If married to a BC who has established a right of residenc...

Re: British overseas citizen no right to work

He was on his mother’s passport during until the age of 16 which was in 1990. If we can prove his mother didn’t leave the uk during this time then is that evidence enough. He wouldn’t have had any other means of travelling outside the uk.

Re: British overseas citizen no right to work

Yes he’s lived here from 8 sept 1978 continuously until now....he did attend an infant school so could get those records. We are going to visit the Cyprus high Commission to find out if he has Cypriot citizenship but I wondered where that left him in regards to his British overseas citizen passport....

Re: British overseas citizen no right to work

I have her passport issued in 1973 which gives her nationality as British Subject: citizen of the United Kingdom and colonies. It has the observation that she has the right of abode in the UK which is crossed out. No date so I’m assuming it was there when issued. There is another observation underne...

Re: British overseas citizen no right to work

I think she got the BOC status when she became homeless as a result of the war. She has always had a British passport though as she and her siblings were brought up between both countries. They were constantly travelling backwards and forwards and she attended school in London. Her marriage was arra...

Re: British overseas citizen no right to work

Both his parents, grandparents were all born in Cyprus. He was born on the British military base in Dhekelia because his mother was a refugee from famagusta and had fled her home after the invasion. They were then placed in a military refugee camp and came to the UK after 1 year. They returned to Cy...

Re: British overseas citizen no right to work

Yes I did read through it, and will be looking into this route. However it appears he may have to prove that he is stateless, which I think should have been checked when he was given the overseas citizen status. The home office have been incompetent which is evident in my husbands case. How can he b...

Re: British overseas citizen no right to work

But he has a national insurance number and has paid tax since starting work almost 30 years ago? His immigration status has never been questioned before. He has an NHS number, has claimed benefits at one point.... is this a mistake? I’ve looked on the gov website to apply for ILR but can’t find wher...

Re: Online right to work checks

Will TFL definitely put licence renewal on hold? Apparently after being cab driver for 13 years they have said I do not have the right to work in uk as I am a British overseas citizen. I’m not sure yet what I need to do to get the right to work so am hoping TfL will put my renewal on hold until I ha...
