WHEN THE HOME OFFICE SHOULD EXERCISE DISCRETION

Applicants under the Points-based system

  • Tier 4 students,
  • Tier 2 and Tier 5 workers,
  • Tier 1 visa holders,

must strictly comply with all visa requirements and supply certain specified documents in support of their applications. It is clear in “stark terms” under paragraph 39B of the Immigration Rules that ‘if the necessary documents are not provided, an applicant will not meet the requirement for which those documents are required as evidence.’ As a result, an application will not be successful.

 

However, in case of exceptional circumstances the Home Office should exercise discretion. Moreover, since R (Behary & Ullah) v SSHD [2016] EWCA Civ 702, it has been good law that the Home Office is obliged to consider discretional grant [outside of the Rules] ‘when expressly asked to do so’. The categories of exceptional circumstances are not closed. In the guidance, examples are given of what could constitute such circumstances, but each case depends on its facts.

 

For example, discretional leave can be granted if educational provider has its licence withdrawn or revoked during the period between an application for extension of leave as a Tier 4 (General) Student and the Secretary of State’s decision on the application (see Patel (revocation of sponsor licence – fairness) India [2011] UKUT 00211 (IAC)).

 

However, the Home Office is quite strict in exercising discretion, especially, in case of Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) extensions. Recent cases of:

  • R (Prathipati) v SSHD (Discretion – Exceptional Circumstances) [2018] UKUT 427 (IAC);
  • R (Sajjad) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2019] EWCA Civ 720;
  • Khajuria, R (on the application of) v The Secretary of State for the Home Department [2019] EWHC 1226 (Admin)
  • Asiweh v The Secretary of State for the Home Department [2019] EWCA Civ 13

are good examples.

 

Thus, it is crucial to seek an immigration advice if not before submitting an application straight after receiving refusal. Our experienced Lawyers can assess the merits of bringing a judicial review claim and provide the best Immigration solution in case a judicial review would be waste of your time and financial resources.

 

I cannot provide all the documents to support my visa application, what do I do?

 

Are you currently on student, work, entrepreneur or any other point-based system visa and looking to extend it?

Or are you looking to apply for the first time?

You must strictly comply with the document list to support your application. Usually, the Home Office is very strict on this while they are evaluating your case, and if you do not provide a required document, your application may be refused.

However, sometimes, in case of exceptional circumstances, the Home Office may exercise discretion, and consider a grant.

There are several categories described in the guidance of such exceptional circumstances. However, each case should be evaluated on an individual basis.

Moreover, the Home Office is quite strict in exercising discretion, especially in case of Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) extensions.

We strongly suggest to seek legal advice before submitting such an application.

We can assess your case and evaluate your chances of getting visa.

However, if you already received a refusal, we still can help. Our lawyers will assess the merits of taking your case to the judicial review claim stage. If we think judicial review will not be successful, we’ll provide you other immigration solution.

The case was successful due to efforts of our Immigration Lawyer Oksana Demyanchuk and her team.

New UK Visa and Citizenship Application System: FAQs

New UK Visa and Citizenship Application system was launched by the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) in November 2018.  New UK Visa and Citizenship Application Service Centres (UKVCAS) were opened for all customers in the UK applying to extend their stay, or applying for citizenship.

When will the new services start?

The majority of customers who are applying to extend their stay in the UK, or applying for citizenship, are able to use the new UKVCAS core centres now, or the Premium Lounge in London.

42 of the 50 enhanced service centres are open; the remaining 8 will be open by early 2019. Customers can choose to continue using the existing process of submitting their biometrics at their local post office during the transition phase. A small percentage of customers who may require more support with their application will continue to use the existing process until new Service and Support Centres open in early 2019.

Why has there been a delay in roll-out?

During early roll-out of VCAS centres, some centres were performing sub-optimally. We have therefore revised the roll-out plan and extended the transition phase to allow us to work with Sopra Steria to address these issues.

What is the main change for customers?

The main change is that customers will now have a streamlined online journey, transitioning seamlessly from their application form on Access UK to our partner Sopra Steria’s website, where they can book their appointment; add services to tailor their experience; and upload their supporting documentation. The new process is quicker, secure and easier for customers.

Why have you made this change?

This is part of a global programme to improve the operations and delivery of UKVI services. These new services will deliver an improved experience to customers, such as allowing customers to retain their supporting evidence, and choose services to tailor their experience; as well as enabling UKVI to step towards a fully digital process, bringing efficiencies. The new service is more in line with the experience we offer to customers overseas when they make an initial application for a visa to travel to the UK for a visit, or to work or study.

Where are the core UK VCAS centres?

The core centres are in Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow, Croydon, Cardiff and Belfast. There is a Premium Lounge in London; and an additional 50 enhanced service centres across the UK, available to customers for a £60 charge.

Will customers know what to do and where to go?

Yes. Customers will be guided through the new process online and transitioned to the Sopra Steria website if appropriate, or directed to the existing process for the small number of customers unable to use UK VCAS.

Will processing times or priority services change?

Service standards for standard applications will not change.

Current Super Premium applications will be delivered by Sopra Steria and be known as On Demand VIP or pop-up services. UKVI will continue to review service standards while opportunities to extend priority services will be explored.

How long will customers have to wait for an appointment? Customers can choose a core UK VCAS centre to attend for a free appointment within 5 days of their application being submitted.

I have heard some customers are having to wait longer than 5 days, why is this?

This has been the case unfortunately but this has now been resolved. During the transition phase our partner, Sopra Steria, did not have capacity to meet demand. We have worked with them to increase capacity since then. We are committed to ensuring all customers are offered an appointment at a core service centre within 5 days of submitting their application.

Can customers bring a legal representative to the appointment?

Yes, customers can bring a representative to the appointment. Applications may or may not require an interview – customers will be informed whether this is required after they have submitted their application. If an interview is required, customers can bring a lawyer or representative if they choose to.

Will this make it harder for customers to remain in the UK?

No, these new services are about supporting UKVI’s vision to be a world-leading immigration service. There is no change to the decision-making process or criteria as a result of this new process. The new process will make it easier for customers to apply to remain in the UK, or apply for citizenship, with an easier, more accessible online application form; ability to upload supporting documentation from home, or take it to their appointment; continued free appointments; and additional services for convenience or ease.

Will all UKVI customers use this new system?

No. In reviewing our services we recognised that some customers may require more support from UKVI, including during the application process itself. Therefore, in early 2019 we will be opening dedicated Service & Support Centres (SSCs) for customers whose applications or circumstances mean they need more assistance with their application.

Which customers will use the Service & Support Centres?

Some customers applying under family and private life routes; to join as a dependant; for Family Reunion; on the basis of statelessness; those who qualify for a fee waiver or fee exemption; and some customers who are required to only enrol their biometric information.

Will customers who are not able to use the UK VCAS centres still be able to use the 24-hour service?

Customers who are applying online for leave based on family or private life who are not able to use the UK VCAS centres but would like to use UKVI’s 24-hour decision service will have access to a limited number of appointments at existing Premium Service Centres until January 2019.

Are fee waivers available?

Yes. Customers will be able to apply for a fee waiver on particular routes using an online form. If a customer’s application for a fee waiver is granted, UKVI will send the customer a digital code that allows them to complete their online form without paying. Guidance is available on gov.uk.

What if customers don’t have digital access or lack confidence applying online?

The Assisted Digital Service aims to ensure that nobody is excluded from making an immigration application due to lack of digital skills or access to a computer. Eligible customers are offered telephone support, or face to face support at a library or their home, to help them access and complete the online form. This service does not provide immigration advice. Further information is available online.

UK Visa Requirements: Who needs a visa to enter or transit the UK

The Home Office issued a guidance to help carriers check their passengers’ travel documents and decide whether a passenger needs a visa to enter or transit the United Kingdom. There are different UK visa rules applied for the airside and landside tansit passengers .

The lists below indicate the countries and territories of citizens who need a visa for the UK.

Airside Transit

Airside transit passengers are those who do not need to change airports and do not need to pass through the UK border. Passengers cannot transit ‘airside’ to the Republic of Ireland or anywhere within the common travel area.

Landside Transit

Landside transit passengers are those who need or wish to pass through the UK border and enter the UK (for example, to change airport, to collect baggage or arrive at airports where no airside transfer is possible).

AIRSIDE: Transit without UK visa (TWOV)

All visa nationals seeking to transit the United Kingdom ‘airside’ without a visa must:

  • arrive and depart by air

  • hold the correct documents for their destination (for example, a visa for that country if required)

Nationals of the countries and territories who need a visa to enter or transit the UK listed below need a visa to transit ‘airside’ unless they hold one of the following:

  1. a valid visa for entry to Australia, Canada, New Zealand or the USA (whether or not the holder is travelling to or from these countries).

  • Australia
  • Canada, issued after 28 June 2002
  • New Zealand
  • USA issued after 21 April 1998; or a valid US Immigrant visa endorsed with a US arrival stamp (a wet-ink/ADIT stamp version will not be accepted by UK border control); or an expired I-551 Permanent Residence card provided it is accompanied by a valid I-797 letter authorising extension; or a standalone US Immigration Form 155A/155B (attached to a sealed brown envelope)

4. a valid common format residence permit issued by an EEA state or Switzerland

5. a valid common format category D visa for entry to an EEA state or Switzerland

6. a valid Irish biometric visa endorsed BC or BC BIVS (in order to transit to a destination other than the Republic of Ireland or the Common Travel Area)

7. a valid Schengen Approved Destination Scheme (ADS) group tourism visa where the holder is travelling to the country that issued it

8. a valid airline ticket from the Schengen area; provided the holder can demonstrate they entered there no more than 30 days previously on the basis of a valid Schengen ADS visa

E-visas or e-residence permits are not acceptable unless the airline is able to verify it with the issuing country.

LANDSIDE: Transit without UK visa (TWOV)

All visa nationals seeking to transit the United Kingdom ‘landside’ without a visa must:

  • arrive and depart by air
  • have a confirmed onward flight that departs before 23:59 the following day
  • hold the correct documents for their destination (for example, a visa for that country if required)

Nationals of the countries and territories who need a visa to enter or transit the UK listed below need a visa to transit ‘landside’ unless they hold one of the following:

  1. a valid visa for entry to Australia, Canada, New Zealand or the USA and a valid airline ticket via the UK as part of a reasonable journey to that country
  2. a valid visa for entry to Australia, Canada, New Zealand or the USA and a valid airline ticket via the UK as part of a reasonable journey from that country
  3. a visa for entry to Australia, Canada, New Zealand or the USA as part of a reasonable journey from the country in respect of which the visa is held and it is less than 6 months since the holder last entered that country with a valid entry visa

E-visas or e-residence permits are not acceptable for landside transit.

The decision to allow a passenger to transit without a visa (TWOV) under the scheme is decided by an immigration officer at the UK border.

UK permanent residents

If a visa national is permanently resident in the UK they do not need a visa, as long as they return to the UK within 2 years of their last departure.

Passengers with the right of abode in the UK

If a visa national has a ‘certificate of entitlement to the right of abode’ label in their valid passport they do not need a UK visa.

Holders of non-national and refugee travel documents

  • If the passenger holds a refugee travel document issued by the UK they do not need a visa.
  • If the passenger holds any other non-national or refugee travel document they need a visa to enter the UK.
  • Whether holders of non-national and refugee travel documents require a direct airside transit visa (DATV) depends on their original nationality, and whether they qualify for one of the exemptions listed above. Persons recognised as stateless under the 1954 UN Convention relating to the Status of Stateless Persons are not required to hold a DATV and may transit airside without a visa.
