EEA Family permit after Refusal

EEA Family Permit granted to a Russian Applicant

A client was Expecting a Grant of Leave as a Tier 4 (General) Student Visa Entry Clearance

Mr M is a Russian national. He came to the UK as a student to further his studies. He was granted entry clearance as a Tier 4 (General) student on several occasions to further his studies in the UK. On the last occasion, as he had done previously, he left the UK and returned to Russia in order to apply for an entry clearance as a Tier 4 Student. At that time, he was already in a relationship with his then girlfriend, who is now his wife, Mrs M who is an EEA national. They had planned to get married in the UK once Mr M was to return from Russia as a Tier 4 General Student.

Surprise Tier 4 Entry Clearance Refusal Changes Life Plans

Mr M applied for entry clearance under Tier 4 (General) Student, but this application was refused. Not only would his studies have been delayed due to this refusal, but he could not travel to the UK earlier to be with Mrs M, and to get married as planned. To get married as planned, Mrs M had to travel to Russia to register their marriage there. After the marriage, Mrs M had to return to the UK and could not stay with Mr M to enjoy their family life due to her work commitment in the UK. They decided that Mrs M was to return to the UK first, and Mr M would later join her.

EEA Family Permit Was the Right Option

Due to the previous refusal, Mr M was worried that his entry to the UK would be refused at the port, or any future application would be refused by the Home Office. Mr M came to us for advice.

We assessed Mr M’s immigration history and advised him to apply for a family permit as he was now the family member of an EEA national who was exercising treaty rights in the UK.

We represented him in his application.

EEA Family Permit Application Approved

In less than a month, Mr M’s family permit was approved. He has since travelled to the UK to join Mrs M so that they could fulfil their dream to buy a house in the UK and start their family. Mr M was also able to further his studies in the UK and have access to better career choices.

A Y & J Solicitors’ Review

Geetabahen Anupkumar Desai gave A Y & J Solicitors 5 stars via @Trustpilot

I know A Y & J Solicitors for many years now and instructed them for various UK immigration matters. But specially I like to talk & thank about my mother’s latest EEA residence permit under ‘Surinder Singh’ route that has been approved in the ‘First instance’. It was a very complex immigration application under EU regulation but with the help of YDVISAS and team, this became a dream come true. I always received a full assurance and a complete hand holding support throughout the application process. I am united with my mother in the UK with the top technical knowledge of EU regulation, relentless efforts and honest – humble approach of A Y & J Solicitors. Saying ‘Thank you’ won’t be enough here, having my mother with me in the UK is a lot more than any words I describe my appreciation with. I highly recommend A Y & J Solicitors to anyone who is looking for professional support in relation to UK immigration including EU regulation / Surinder Singh route.
