How can IAS help migrants?

IAS is the leading charity giving legal advice and representation services to immigrants and asylum seekers free to those who are eligible.

IAS was created in 1993 out of the former United Kingdom Immigrants Advisory Service (UKIAS: established in 1970) as an independent organisation publicly funded under the 1971 Immigration Act to provide free advice and representation to persons with rights of appeal against refusal of their applications. Together with UKIAS, therefore, IAS has over 35 years’ experience of helping those facing immigration and asylum difficulties. We now have offices throughout the UK and in Sylhet (Bangladesh) and Lahore (Pakistan).

The Large Charities Unit of the Charity Commission visited IAS in October 2004 and made the following comments:

“Our overall impression is that the charity has proved itself able to respond well in an environment characterised by rapid change. The IAS seems focussed on its areas of expertise and, in a competitive environment, is clear about its niche and what distinguishes it from commercial service providers. The charity is outward-facing and evidently strives to be accessible to its users.

“We gained an impression of an active and effective trustee board, and an appropriate delineation of roles between the trustees and executive.

“The implications of the changing funding arrangements have been significant to the IAS. However, progress has evidently been made in changing the internal culture, as well as in responding to the increased competition around service provision. The IAS seems clear about its distinctive characteristics (such as the experience and expertise developed over a long period) and makes use of opportunities to shore up its place in the market (eg: through expansion into areas where commercial services have closed).

“The charity actively seeks to make its publications accessible to its clients, including through the use of multi-lingual videos, and by keeping its website simple to enable people to download it with less advanced technology. It is also clear that the IAS compares well against many other charities in its progress towards attaining the best practice standards as outlined in the Regulatory Study RSB on Transparency & Accountability.”

The IAS provides an outstanding and much needed service to migrants. To contact IAS visit:

  2. hi,
    I applied to extend my student visa in October 2011. It was refused on grounds of insufficient funds. Shortly before I submitted my appeal, I made sure I paid my tuition fees in full. However, my appeal got dismissed just recently in May 2012. My question is that can i apply for Discretionary leave to remain and is there any high likelihood to be successful under the DL(discretionary leave)?.If so, how many years will I be Given. In addition can I work while my application is still under consideration?

    NOTE: I am due to be graduating from university 2013 february. I just got ONE semester more to be done with university. This will be my second time of extending my student visa. i have been in the UK on student visa since october 2007.

  9. Shamroz says :

    Hi,
    I would like to make application for discretionary leave to remain in the United Kingdom outside the Immigration Rules. This is because, at present, I cannot qualify within the Immigration Rules. I want to make application on Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights in support of such application and seek protection of my right to have respect for private and family life. Can you please tell me which application I should download and can you mail me the link of that application please.
    Is it right that the fee for main applicant is £475 and £92 for each dependent?
    Thanks & regards
    Shamroz Khan
