ByLaw offense Graduate/ Skilled worker visa

Post by Cnexcha08 » Mon Feb 12, 2024 10:40 am

I have gotten a job offer by a company in UK, and they will be sponsoring my visa for the work. However I have recently been prosecuted for a Byelaw 17(1) of the Transport for London Railway Byelaws offense. How will this affect my visa application if I declare it? Will I still be able to obtain a visa?

The types of offences that mean the application must be refused or that a current visa must be cancelled are explained in the General grounds for refusal, specifically paragraphs 9.4.1 and 9.4.2 of the immigration rules:

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/immigration ... or-refusal

Other offences that mean an application may be refused are explained separately in paragraphs 9.4.3 and 9.4.5.

If it is useful there is guidance for Home Office staff on assessing offences. See "Grounds for refusal -- criminality: caseworker guidance":

Your offence must be declared however it is not going to impact the outcome

Thank you for your reply. Yes I am planning to declare it for sure, I also read that on the HO website this offense is not listed as a ground for refusal of visa, but am still worried this may affect their decision, especially with the new rules and the govt trying to limit foreign workers in the UK

Really don’t worry about it, you should be perfectly fine. The main thing is the declaration as that takes any possibility of being pulled up for non declaration. Don’t overthink it 👍

An application can only be refused for not meeting the rules. There is no refusal quota that a caseworker is trying to meet by making up their own rules.
