    English language and Life in the UK tests

    The Home Office has confirmed in writing to ILPA that immigration and nationality applications can be submitted without the English language test or Life in the UK test. The individual will still need to pass the test before the application can be granted.

    However, the formal Home Office policy is yet to be published.

    Salary reductions

    The Home Office has confirmed that a sponsor is not required to submit a change of employment application where they are reducing the salary of a high earner to below £159,600 if the reduction is due to Covid-19 and is in line with the concession provided in the Home Office guidance i.e. it is temporary and no less than 80%/£2,500 per month (whichever is lower).

    UK BA answer: We can confirm that an individual can submit their immigration application without a Secure English Language Testing (SELT) result or a Life in the UK (LitUK) result whilst testing services in the UK are disrupted. If either of these results are needed to meet the requirements of the application route, they will need to have successfully passed the test before we grant the application.

    COVID19 and the UK Immigration update


    >>> Compulsary quarantine

    The government’s “COVID-19 recovery strategy”, last updated on 12 May, says that people travelling to the UK will soon be asked to go into quarantine for two weeks after they arrive. The document states:

    " … the Government will require all international arrivals not on a short list of exemptions to self-isolate in their accommodation for fourteen days on arrival into the UK. Where international travellers are unable to demonstrate where they would self-isolate, they will be required to do so in accommodation arranged by the Government.".
    There will be some exceptions, including for journeys within the Common Travel Area (covering the UK, Crown Dependencies and Ireland) and from France. There is no official date for this policy to begin: the government only says that it will come in “as soon as possible”. But the BBC has reported that “the new restriction is expected to take effect at the end of this month [May 2020]”.

    Хорошие новости.

    На прошлой неделе подал заявлениe клиента на ILR по категории Tier 2(General).

    Тогда смогли только подать и оплатить заявление. Ни биометрику, ни загрузку документов не смогли сделать.

    Сегодня получили Email из Home Office выслать им документы напрямую по Email.

    То есть в обход биометрики и загрузки документов через Sopra Steria.

    Я выслал документы в Home Offie по Email в течение 30 минут :-)

    Сейчас ждем решения.

    Новые услвия перехода без выезда их UK

    >>> COVID19 and the UK Immigration

    The current information from the UK BA (via Email from the CiT UK BA team; yet to be confirmed on the UK BA web-site)

    IN BRIEF:

    In the standard CIH response relating to the in-country switching concession, it appears that the in-country switching concession is being extended to those with visas expiring 1 June - 30 June (see below). There appears to be new wording about some proscribed (short term) routes into which switching applications cannot be made.

    There does not appear to be any inclusion (in this standard email) of reference to 'automatic' extension of visas for those whose visas expire 1 June - 30 June, or for those whose visas have been extended under the current scheme to 31 May. But presumably this will need to follow.


    The details:

    Switching: visa holder in UK - leave expires between 24 January and 31 May


    Thank you for contacting the Home Office Coronavirus Immigration Team about switching from your current immigration route due to issues related to COVID-19.

    No individual of any nationality whose leave has expired or is due to expire between 24 January 2020 and 31 May 2020, and who cannot leave because of travel restrictions related to COVID-19, will be regarded as an overstayer or suffer any detriment in the future.

    Where you would normally be required to return to your country of residence to apply for a visa in a different category, you’ll now be able to apply from the UK to switch.

    This only applies if your leave has expired or will expire on or after 24 January 2020 to 31 May 2020, including where leave has already been extended to 31 March 2020.

    You will need to be switching from/to an eligible route and you’ll need to meet the same visa requirements and pay the same application fee.

    It is not possible to switch into short term visa routes where applications can only be made outside of the UK, such as:

    - Tier 5 Youth Mobility
    - Tier 5 Seasonal Worker
    - Tier 4 Chevening, Commonwealth and Marshall scholars
    - Overseas Domestic Workers

    You should apply online but you will not be able to book a biometric appointment at a UK Visa and Citizenship Application Centre Services (UKVCAS) service point or a Service and Support Centre (SSC). This is because we have temporarily closed these biometric enrolment services.

    Access UK is now holding applications for an increased period of 240 days. This will ensure that applications remain live and valid and supporting enrolment of biometric data once services have resumed. To ensure that you can book an appointment after 240 days, you must register for your UKVCAS account when you complete your online application. This will activate your account so that you can be contacted when the service resumes.

    If you have been advised that you can enrol your biometrics at a Post Office you should check the availability of services through the Post Office finder, as advised on your Biometric Enrolment letter, or through updates on GOV.UK.

    You will not be regarded as an overstayer or be subject to enforcement action if you are unable to attend a biometric appointment due to COVID-19 or if there are delays in processing your application. The terms of your leave will remain the same until your application is decided.

    Switching: visa holder in UK - leave expires between 1 June and 30 June

    No individual of any nationality whose leave has expired or is due to expire between 24 January 2020 and 31 May 2020, and who cannot leave because of travel restrictions related to COVID-19, will be regarded as an overstayer or suffer any detriment in the future.

    Although your leave expires after 31 May 2020, we will on this occasion allow you to switch routes while you’re in the UK.

    You will need to be switching from/to an eligible route and you’ll need to meet the same visa requirements and pay the same application fee.

    It is not possible to switch into short term visa routes where applications can only be made outside of the UK, such as:

    - Tier 5 Youth Mobility
    - Tier 5 Seasonal Worker
    - Tier 4 Chevening, Commonwealth and Marshall scholars
    - Overseas Domestic Workers

    You should apply online but you will not be able to book a biometric appointment at a UK Visa and Citizenship Application Centre Services (UKVCAS) service point or a Service and Support Centre (SSC). This is because we have temporarily closed these biometric enrolment services.

    Access UK is now holding applications for an increased period of 240 days.

    You will not be regarded as an overstayer or be subject to enforcement action if you are unable to attend a biometric appointment due to COVID-19 or if there are delays in processing your application. The terms of your leave will remain the same until your application is decided.

    Switching: visa holder in UK - leave expires from 1 July

    No individual of any nationality whose leave has expired or is due to expire between 24 January 2020 and 31 May 2020, and who cannot leave because of travel restrictions related to COVID-19, will be regarded as an overstayer or suffer any detriment in the future.

    As your leave to remain in the UK does not expire within the relevant dates, you are not eligible to switch into another route while you’re in the UK.

    Please continue to check the GOV.UK website, where up to date advice is published. The latest information and advice for visa holders and temporary residents can be found here:

    21 May 2020 – Just useful and interesting UK & EEA Immigration Law news and updates from the Legal Centre – Open 7 days a week - www.legalcentre.org - +44(0)3300010342, +44(0)7791145023 (WhatsApp/Viber)

    >>> CORONAVIRUS and UK Immigration: https://www.gov.uk/government/collec...on-and-borders

    Switching

    The guidance also includes information on switching visas. It allows people to “apply from the UK to switch to a long-term UK visa until 31 May 2020. This includes applications where you would usually need to apply for a visa from your home country”.

    From what it seems to apply, this would be an in-country application rather than an application for entry clearance. The concession was initially limited to people whose visa is due to expire by 31 May 2020. As we have reported earlier, the Home Office is sending out emails extending the concession to people with visas expiring in June.

    No recourse to public funds

    Migrants whose visa stipulates that they can have “no recourse to public funds” are in a difficult position. Without access to benefits to make up for loss of work, many face desti***ion.

    Government guidance issued on 23 April says that there is some support available to migrants with no recourse to public funds, including:

    -Coronavirus testing and treatment
    -Deliveries of food and medicine if “shielding” as a particularly vulnerable person
    -Sta***ory sick pay
    -Contributory Employment and Support Allowance
    -The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme and Coronavirus Self-employment Income Support Scheme

    The Home Office also says that it has launched a £1.5 million pilot fund to accommodate victims of domestic violence who have no resource to public funds.

    But as the House of Commons Library says, “the Government hasn’t announced a blanket policy to change NRPF restrictions”. Those subject to the no recourse condition must still apply to have it lifted in order to access to the wider welfare system.

    From an immigration perspective, that is not an application to be taken lightly, as not only does removing NRPF punt you off a 5-year route to settlement and on to the 10-year route, but the Home Office has also made it clear that if you manage to change back, it will not count any of your previously accrued residence and your clock starts back at 0.

    The High Court found on 7 May that aspects of the no recourse policy are unlawful. As a result, the Home Office updated its information on applying to have the condition lifted where the person is only “at risk of becoming desti***e”, as opposed to already desti***e.

    Immigration tribunal hearings Overview

    HM Courts and Tribunals Service is now issuing a weekly operational update. There are specific status reports for First-tier and Upper Tribunal immigration and asylum cases. They provide a useful summary of the state of play (as of the week commencing 18 May):

    "The [First-tier] tribunal has suspended face to face hearings (other than in exceptional circumstances) until further notice. A notice containing instructions on the next steps in your case will be sent to you. We are working through the listed cases in priority and date order and you should wait until we contact you. Please do not call us unless your enquiry is urgent. Bail applications will be prioritised and where a hearing is required, will be listed to take place by telephone or video. Users are advised to contact the relevant hearing centre on the email addresses below until further notice.

    There is also a slightly more detailed “help for users” document, dated 15 April.

    For the Upper Tribunal:

    "There may be some delays in processing non-urgent work. Please see below different ways in which we are dealing with appeals and judicial reviews."

    Appeals and Permission to Appeal applications to UTIAC:

    "Appeals that were listed for hearing have been postponed. All appeals to UTIAC are being judicially case managed. There is also limited monitoring of the appeals email inbox currently taking place."

    Judicial Reviews in UTIAC:

    "A notice was issued (23 March 2020) on handling of urgent Judicial review applications
    A updated notice was issued on 30th April 2020 on handling non-urgent applications.
    The fees counter at Field House is currently closed and calls to 020 7073 4278 may not be answered"

    The “updated note” on non-urgent applications says:

    "Beginning on 30th April 2020 and until further notice, Judicial Review applications made to the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) that do not require urgent or immediate consideration can be filed as follows:

    1. By email to UTIACJudicialReviewApplications@justice.gov.uk, by post or at the fees counter when the counter re-opens.

    2. Attachments to emails sent to UTIACJudicialReviewApplications@justice.gov.uk must not, in total, exceed 25 MB per email. If they exceed this limit the email will not be delivered."

    Further visas extensions for those unable to return home due to coronavirus (22 May 2020)


    Overseas nationals who cannot return home due to the coronavirus pandemic will be able to extend their visa until the end of July to give them peace of mind that they can stay in the UK until they are able to return home safely.

    The extension will last until 31 July and will apply to anyone whose leave expired after the 24 January and cannot leave the country because of travel restrictions or self-isolation.

    While the Government has offered this extension to help those who are unable to get home prior to 31 July, those currently in the UK on temporary visas, such as visitor visas, should return home as soon as it is safe and possible to do so.

    Home Secretary Priti Patel said:

    “By extending people’s visas further, we are giving them peace of mind that they are able to stay in the UK until the end of July if they are unable to leave the country safely.

    “This is one of a number of unprecedented measures the Government has made to support people during this time, however, as we begin a cautious return to normality those currently in the UK on expired visitor visas should return home as soon as possible.”

    Today’s announcement builds on the previous extension which lasts until of 31 May, and ensures people who are not able to leave the UK are not impacted by circumstances outside of their control.

    A dedicated coronavirus immigration team is continuing to work with individuals to make the process as straightforward as possible. Anyone in this situation, who has not contacted them already, just needs to contact the team via an online form to let them know their visa has expired and they will be issued with an extension.

    To help those who want to apply for visas to stay in the UK long-term, the Home Office is also extending the in-country switching provisions until 31 July.

    This will mean people can apply to switch into long-term routes whilst remaining in the UK. UKVI will continue to process applications as quickly as possible, however some applications may take longer than usual due to coronavirus related operational pressures.

    Many foreign nationals have found themselves unable to return home since the outbreak of coronavirus due to flight cancellations and border restrictions.

    Those who contact the Home Office for these visa extensions will be expected to return to their home countries as soon as possible once flight and border restrictions are lifted. No immigration enforcement action will be undertaken during this time for those who email the Home Office as outlined above.

    In light of the current advice on self-isolation and social distancing, the Home Office is also waiving a number of requirements on visa sponsors, such as allowing non-EU nationals here under work or study routes to undertake their work or study from home.
