A Y & J Successful in Assisting Client With Application For Leave to Remain as a Tier 2 (General) Migrant After Prior Refusal

On July 30, 2019 | In Skilled worker route | By A Y & J Solicitors


Our client, Miss A first arrived in the UK as a Tier 4 General student migrant.  After completing her study in the UK, Miss A found a job in the UK.  Her employer was willing to sponsor her Visa application.  Miss A then submitted an application for a Tier 2 General before the expiry of her previous leave.  Unfortunately, the application was refused on the date which her leave was expired, leaving Miss A concerned and deeply frustrated.  However, despite her setback, she did not give up and contacted us for advice in relation to her immigration issue

How A Y & J helped our client achieve leave to remain

Resolving an incorrect SOC code

During the consultation, we reviewed Miss A’s refusal letter carefully.  We discovered that Miss A’s application had been refused because the salary included in her Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS) was not at or above the appropriate rate of the job, as specified under Appendix A of the Immigration Rules.  However, we also learned that Miss A’s employer had chosen the wrong SOC code for Miss A’s role.  We contacted Miss A’s employer regarding the issue and explained that if they could correct the SOC code and the salary and assign a new CoS, we would be able to submit a fresh Visa application which had a good chance of success.  Miss A’s employer agreed to assign a new CoS.

We then helped Miss A’s employer to choose the correct SOC code and the salary.  We also reviewed all the information in the CoS, ensuring everything was correct.

Handing the issue of overstaying

While waiting for the new CoS, we prepared for Miss A’s fresh application.  However, during this time, we found out that Miss A’s previous visa had expired, meaning she was overstaying in the UK.  We had to address the matter carefully.

According to paragraph 39E of the Immigration Rules, there are exceptions for overstayers.

According to paragraph 39E of the Immigration Rules, there are exceptions for overstayers.  As her application was submitted following the refusal of a previous application for leave (which was made in-time) and within 14 days of the refusal of the previous application for leave, the period of overstaying could be disregarded.

We then helped Miss A obtain all of the documents she needed for the application and prepared a detailed legal representation addressing her previous refusal and the period of overstaying. We also highlighted Miss A’s relevant qualification and experience to demonstrate she was appropriately qualified and suitable for the role.

Next, we helped Miss A book her appointment for super-priority service and uploaded all documents in advance.

The Result: Our client was granted residency on the same day as applying

With our help, Miss A submitted her application with ease and received the decision on the same day.  Miss A’s application was approved without further enquiries from the Home office, and her new Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) arrived a few working days later.

S Patel gave A Y & J Solicitors 5 stars via @Trustpilot

Tier – 2 General Application : AY&J is the BEST immigration solicitor firm in the UK. My tier -2 general case was so complex , my first tier-2 was expired in May-17 , AR was refused and do so last 6 month me – my wife both lost work right , we kept FLR(FP) file on my son while we were looking for sponsor regardless of knowing there are less hope to get tier-2 approval. We were going through so much stress and hard time. By grace of God we got sponsorship (COS) from one company ( before FLR decision come) and same time we came to know about AY&J from our friend and gave our case to them with high hope of miracle. We applied in same day premium service and our file gone on held as expected. But unexpectedly miracle happen and we got our tier-2 visa approval in 10 days. Me and my family highly thankful of Yash sir and specially Dianamam (my case worker) who use their expertise and handle my case very carefully by going in detail which resulted in Visa approval in unexpected short time. Thanks a lot to Dianamam , Yash sir and entire AY&J team. I highly recommend AY&J to those all , specially who got complex in their immigration matter. AY&J is the Best.!!!! Regards
