Re: Naturalization Questions

1. Can my wife apply with me? Not if she got ILR only two months ago. She needs to wait until either (a) she completes one year with ILR or (b) you have attended your citizenship ceremony and got your naturalisation certificate. Only at that point do you become a British citizen and she can then ap...

Re: Visitor visa / Partner visa and max duration query for new traveller

What is your UK immigration status? Are you a British citizen, an EEA citizen or here on a work or other visa?

Re: two family visit visa

In your first application, did you mention how long you would stay in the UK on each trip? Do you have family in the UK?

Re: British citizenship refuse

A Judicial Review is a possibility, but it's also very costly. :idea: And you may not realise just how much. A JR would likely go through the High Court and the Court of Appeal. There is no automatic right of appeal to the Supreme Court, which will not pick up the case unless it raises "points of l...

Re: Non EU Wife with UK husband & Netherlands Residence family permit refused entry into UK

Try contacting your local municipality and see what they say about what proof they require for issuing an alien's passport.

Note that on an alien passport, she will have much less visa free access as compared to an Emirati passport.

Re: Non EU Wife with UK husband & Netherlands Residence family permit refused entry into UK

Provided your wife does not plan to travel to the UAE, have you looked at applying for an alien's passport (Vreemdelingenpaspoort)? Non-Dutch nationals who have a Dutch residence permit and who are unable to obtain a passport from their country of origin sometimes qualify for an alien’s passport. Yo...

in 2016 I have been issued a residence card stating permanent residence till 2026 still as a family member of union citizen. As you have received a Permanent Residence Card in 2016, you can apply for British citizenship provided you meet the other requirements (physical presence, absence, LITUK, En...

Re: Is it an error of law to say?

the whole immigration history, at this point, is irrelevant. Actually, it would be very relevant. The law and its application is made up of many moving parts and it is not much use knowing how one specific part works, because the whole machinery may disregard the action of that specific part or may...

Re: Certificate of Application before biometrics

With the exception of the UK, almost every other EEA member-state also issues a National Identity Card to their citizens. Can your husband not apply for one quickly?

Definitely not certain. I am only going by the plain English meaning of the word "foreseeable".

Re: ILR Refused Due to Salary Threshold

The Home Office is generally not a huge fan of salaries being increased artifically just before applications are due, to meet salary thresholds. That could trigger an investigation of not only your case, but also all the other Tier 2 roles that your employer fills (essentially their Tier 2 licence w...

Re: The extent to which the meaning of "foreseeable future" for ILR application can stretch.

I think the "foreseeable future" means that there is no end date to that specific employment.

A fixed-term employment by definition means that it is not for the foreseeable future.

Indeed, the end of the employment is clearly foreseen and specified in the terms of the contract.

I can see that all other people who are EU nationals and even if they gets benefits they are sponsoring their brother’s, sister’s uncle’s and nephew’s all are getting visas without any hesitation. That is because EU law provides for that in case of non-British EEA citizens of other EEA member-state...

Irrespective of the order in which he married them, he can only sponsor one spouse to the UK. Therefore, as your mother is already in the UK, your step-mother cannot come to the UK on a dependent spouse visa (she can on some other visa, just not on a dependent spouse visa). As your step-sister was b...
