On the Asylum front, we witnessed the determination in PS Zimbabwe  laying grounds that clarified circumstances under which the cessation of refugee status is triggered. The case of G v G  gave new insights to the Family asylum claims process while Akbar  helped summarize the strenuous journey from initial human rights claims through to further representations and fresh claims decisions.
The domino effect brought about by the post-Brexit continued to be seen under EUSS cases that unravelled in 2021. The Home Office carried on to update policy documents in this respect, one of them being Guidance on enforcement against EEA Nationals. Geci  came as saviour, as it confirmed how the EEA Regulations 2016 are preserved for appeal purposes post-Brexit, including the end of the transition period.
The biggest change witnessed in the light of the on going challenges of the pandemic in November 2021 was the massive updates made to Coronavirus policies, concessions and changes to procedure. This now includes revision to exceptional assurance deadlines, countries on red list and other various updates impacting immigration applications.
Procedural changes were seen with updates to various immigration forms, Immigration Health Surcharge payment, and updates to Home Office immigration and nationality fees. The good news amongst all of this is that the Home Office has maintained the charges from the previous year with £0 fee increase to all listed applications!
