Re: Visitor Visa extension FLR (IR)

Perhaps a poor choice of words. Single entry 6 month visas are not routinely extended, yes you can apply to do so but unless there is extenuating circumstances it is highly unlikely to be granted. You have nothing to lose by applying apart from the application fee and the possibility of a refusal th...

Re: Switch from Tier 2 to FLR(M) Unmarried Partner Delay

The most relevant parts of your application will be meeting the income threshold and demonstrating the living a kin to marriage. These are the two areas where most concern / refusals come from. As long as these areas have been completely covered off it should be a case of wait and see.

Re: Visitor Visa extension FLR (IR)

You have probably answered your own question - if your gf does not have a multiple entry , multiple year visit visa then you can not extend. If the visa she has was for a duration of 6 months only, it can not be routinely extended. Extensions for long-term multiple-entry visit visas. If a visitor ho...

Re: Visitor Visa extension FLR (IR)

I don’t wish to put a dampener on things but there is virtually zero chance of a visit visa extension being granted. For any proper consideration of an extension to be granted there has to be extenuating circumstances. A failure to understand the validity period of the visa is not a circumstance tha...

Re: Asylum Seeker wishing to marry non-UK national

It might be a struggle for your US fiancé to be granted a fiancé visa in order to marry in the UK. I have assumed you are a previously failed asylum seeker based on your resubmission of claim? As you know you are not free to marry in the UK unless the Home Office grants you permission. A caseworker ...

Re: Advice for second application

Is your wife a UK citizen? I only ask for clarity and it is you not your wife that is applying for the spouse visa. It is going to be very difficult to say there is a subsisting marriage if you have not been together in 5 years. Every scrap of evidence you can submit to show that your relationship i...

Re: Immigration Bail-Please help!

Did he ever have any form of legal status in the UK? Was the asylum claim after his arrest? How long was he in the UK prior to his arrest? I have assumed he had no legal status prior to his arrest and hence the asylum claim? From my experience if the individual entered the country clandestinely, is ...

Re: Immigration Bail-Please help!

What immigration status does the individual hold? If he does not have any legal status he will not be released, he will move to an immigration centre for removal at or near the end of his sentence.

Re: Immigration Bail-Please help!

Release from detention bail in the scenario of an application may come with a guarantee of a sum of money to the court. It is increasingly less common for this to be a consideration. The court sets the amount not the Home Office, it is highly unlikely that the migrant will be asked for an amount of ...

Treat it as a new employer because it is a new licence and you for the purposes of your visa are “moving” to a new sponsor

Re: Travelling outside UK when sponsor name isn't listed on registered sponsors

New licence - in that case just get a COS and apply - no need for a letter explaining anything. It won’t add value and may well cause needless concern.

You will need to reapply with a new COS under the skilled worker route with your current employer. Do so as a matter of urgency.

Re: Travelling outside UK when sponsor name isn't listed on registered sponsors

My suggestion is that the Sponsor contacts Sheffield to see what is happening - if they are going to move the COS - this is not completed immediately and takes a bit of time. So I would not expect to see it so soon after the licence grant / renewal. If the concession was not granted or worse still n...

Re: Travelling outside UK when sponsor name isn't listed on registered sponsors

UKVI can operate a concession and decide to allow the new licence application to be treated as a renewal application. It is not guaranteed nor is it a matter that can be appealed. Each case would be considered on its own merits and the circumstances around why the renewal was not completed in time. ...

There are two things that are critical. A verified arrival date, so that will be the date they can absolutely prove their entry to the UK, passport stamp as an example. If there is no evidence of that nature then the date when asylum was claimed will be taken as the date of entry. The 20 years clock...
