The UK Border Agency has confirmed a number of changes to the Immigration Rules concerning those who overstay their visa, which came into effect on 1 October.

New Rules will apply for anyone extending a visa on or after 1 October 2012.

If you are applying to extend your visa under the points-based system, all working and student routes, visiting routes, long residency routes and discharged HM Forces and UK ancestry routes, will fall under the new rules.

The new rules mean that if you are here on limited leave to enter or remain in the UK and now wish to extend your visa, you must apply within 28 days of your current visa expiring.

Your extension application for further leave will be refused if you have overstayed your visa by more than 28 days from application.

People removed or deported from the UK may be subject to a ban on re-entering the country for up to 10 years.

The UK does not have a complete system for ‘counting-in and counting-out’ the millions of people who arrive in the UK on Tier 4 student visas, tourist visas or as dependants, which makes it almost impossible to know how many people have overstayed in the first place.

There are between 500,000 to 700,000 people living in the UK illegally, which the think tank ippr estimated would take 20 years at a cost of £5 billion to remove.

Cynthia Barker of Immigration Advisers Bison Management warns overstayers not to use unqualified illegal advisers.

‘If you have overstayed you should seek advice from a qualified immigration adviser who is regulated by the OISC’.

  4. we have a time period of upto 28 days after visa expires to apply for extension. if applied after 28 days, it will be termed overstayed, right?

  5. if you applied for leave extension, your application refused and you applied against the decision and your appeal was granted by immigration judge but the Home Office refuse to issue you a visa and your passport is with AKBA for more than five months after the court decision and all the letters written by your legal representative to intervene was not acknowledged. What can such person do?
