Filipino Majestic College NVQ student makes it to the UK after his entry clearance refusal in Manila was overturned by an Immigration Judge at the AIT (Asylum and Immigration Tribunal) following an appeal.
Immigration Advisers, Bison UK, lodged the appeal after he was unfairly refused entry clearance last year.
At the hearing in Hatton Cross in April, the Judge agreed with Bison’s appeal specialist Mr Jerry Turner and allowed the appeal.
He now has a 3 year student visa to study NVQ in Health and Social Care, combined with paid work placement.
Visa appeals have been abolished for student visa refusals applying under Tier 4 in line with new ‘points based’ rules. Students refused entry clearance under Tier 4 of the points based system, which took effect on 31 March 2009, will now have their cases reviewed by an ECM under the new ‘Administrative Review’ system.
Refusals under paragraph 57 of the previous immigration rules will still be allowed a full appeal. Therefore, if your student visa application (VAF) was submitted before 31 March 2009, you should still have the right of appeal.
