This week I was at the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal (AIT) in London on an appeal case for an entry clearance refusal against an NVQ student visa applicant in Mumbai, India. We won the appeal.

These refusal cases are not uncommon and highlight the dilemma faced by migrant workers who, not wishing to ‘rock the boat’ or upset their prospective employer, are often too scared to recommend using their immigration adviser.
