Filipina NVQ Student obtains a 3 years visa after being refused by the British Embassy in Manila.
Her visa was refused last November after she has submitted the VAF herself.
The case was overturned this month, following an appeal, prior to a full hearing scheduled for 11 August 2009 at the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal (AIT) in London.
She was helped by Immigration Advisers, Bison UK, which has successfully handled hundreds of entry clearance appeals.
The student has now reported to Majestic College, and will shortly start her NVQ Health and Social Care Course.
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 (Entry Clearance Manager) 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 (which are still being processed at larger Embassies), you should still have the right of appeal.
Fortunately, this student has the opportunity to appeal and the benefit of an OISC regsitered Immigration Adviser, Bison UK, handing her case at the AIT.
Overseas students are worth £8 billion to the UK economy, according to the Home Office.
