Birmingham Courses - Applying for Leave to Remain & Visit Visa Applications
How to Prepare Visit Visa Applications
With nearly 300,000 visit visa refusals last year, and the loss of the right of appeal for family visitors, preparing a visit visa application has never been more difficult. For those applying from many countries, the predictable refusal of a visit visa has become a sad feature of the UK Home Office’s clampdown on migration. This course aims to help you prepare visit visa applications that stand out from the crowd, and which will impress even the most hard-nosed Entry Clearance Officer.
We will consider:
-the current rules, Home Office guidance and caselaw on visit applications
-remedies, including applying again, human rights appeals, and judicial review
-how to prepare an impressive application
We will use cases studies and worked examples, and there will be plenty of time for discussion. The course will be suitable for advisors from probationary level upwards.
Applying for Leave to Remain: Validity & Timing
Applying for leave to remain is becoming an ever scarier process. The Home Office continues to invent new ways of rejecting, voiding and invalidating applications, such that the process of getting a substantive decision has become a minefield. And with the government’s ‘increasingly hostile environment’ now in full play, innocent mistakes by advisors can pitch their client headlong into disaster.
In this vital new course, we will look at issues concerning the validity and timing of applications and further applications, including recent changes to section 3C leave, the new paragraph 39E, variation of applications, and how all this weaves together with administrative reviews and appeals. We will show you how to get through the minefield intact, ensuring your applications are never again rejected, voided or invalidated, and provide you with a full set of tools to protect your client’s leave when applying to extend.
