Another entry clearance (student visa) refusal reversed by the repsondent British Embassy in Manila following an appeal to AIT (Asylum and Immigration Tribunal).
Immigration Adviser Bison UK lodeged the entry clearance appeal six months ago after the Filipina student was unlawfully refused a visa to study for an NVQ course at Majestic College in London.
Shortly before the appeal hearing, the Entry Clearance Manager withdrew the original refusal and issued the 3 year student visa within a week.
The Filipina student has now reported to her UK educational provider, Majestic College (www.majesticcollege.org), to start her NVQ Health and Social Care course, which runs alongside paid work placement arranged by Bison UK.
Visa appeals have been abolished for student visa refusals 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.
