Refusals withdrawn prior to full AIT hearing say advisers 

Leading appeal specialists, Bison UK, have reported a sharp rise in the number of entry clearance refusals, involving student visas and family cases, overturned by Entry Clearance Managers (ECM’s) at the British Embassy in Manila. 

Previously, Bison UK had to take most appeals all the way to hearing stage at the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal (AIT), where over 95% of their cases were successful. 

But in the last month, a number of clients in the Philippines have been contacted by the British Embassy to come and get their visas. 

Managers at the company are not sure why the Embassy seems to have had a change of heart, but are none the less delighted to see the notification from the AIT that the “respondent has withdrawn”.  

Most of the refusal grounds for student visas, which have since become obsolete under Tier 4 of the Points Based System, are based on “intention” to return home or study.  

Entry Clearance Officers (ECO’s) should no longer refuse on subjective grounds such as: “on the balance of probabilities you are unlikely to return home at the end of your studies” or “your real intention is to work in the UK rather than study”. 

Visa applicants still have the right of appeal on refusals based on previous Rules, however, refusals under Tier 4 applications (made after 31 March 2009) will be dealt with by an in-house ‘Administrative Review’ system.

    Hello Aswath

    The exactly same case as yours happened to me too today my uk student visa got refused on the basis that they said i have put funds in my account for one day where as my bank statement clearly shows the funds have been put for the 28 day period. They gave me an option for administrative review but i dont know if i should go for that or make a new application since my classes start in ten days. Please tell me what are you doing about it. It IS really frustrating

    Hey im from chennai and i applied for visa this Aug 25th 2011 and i received my mail on the 6th Sept stating refusal of clearance.. i had a additional document stating one administrative review and another document stating that the fees that i have shows is not sufficient.. when i went through the bank details i saw that the person who processed my visa had seen only the loan sanctioned amount and not the marginal amount already in the bank and it is clearly mentioned in the bank format statement that total amount is more than 15 lakhs which is like 20k + pounds which is more than sufficient enough please advise me should i go for admin review cuz it says it will take 3 weeks and my uni starts in the next week and moreover after 3 weeks only they said will give reply should i apply for review or put in a new application.. it is so frustrating that something like this could happen after giving 20k Indian cash for visa processing how can they be so careless :( im confused frustrated and pised)

    My husband is Tunisian and got refused his visa to the UK for the birth of his child! I am 4 and a half months pregnant.
    He was refused his visa becoz we originally applied for a 2 year visa, he went to the British embassy in tunis with the correct fee stated on the top of his visa application to be told he had to pay more – which he didn’t Hav the extra amount at the time. So he was advised to reduce it to 6 months, making any supporting letters not co-inside with visa. So they refused on the grounds that they feel he wudnt return after the 6months! I have appealed the decision but have been told it can take anything up to 11 weeks :-( do u think it’s worth re applying and keeping the appeal open as soon we will be running out of time :( thanks.

    …..after reading all the comments above regarding different cases and results in appeals..it is very evident that british embassy are employed of INCOMPETENT employees who dont do their jobs mainly because ..95 percent of appeals are being won in Courts overturning their original decision of refusal. They should suffer also the consequences of their mistakes or even loose their jobs so they will not contaminate other remaining good workers in the embassy…My question is….Do they have administrative sanction policy to those review officers who decided wrongly to refuse a visa after being overturned by the High Court…? They should be fined for wasted efforts , time and money…. Your reply is very much appreciated

    Hi, I really need your advice sir, I’m a student in uk and my visa was refused now I’m ready to file appeal against secretary of state. The reason for the refusal is because my college didn’t ensure that I’m competent in English on common European framew
    ork. This is the only reason and I’m going to sit for IELTS test which I’m sure I’m going to pass plus letter from college that I’m competent in English which the assessment method which I score 61 and is on B2. But I just want to knw if I win my appeal will I need to show evidence of funds as I received letter from my bank stating that they ve recently undertaken a review of the banking arrangements that I ve with them and that with regret, they ve reached the conclusion that they will no longer provide these facilities for me. Please I need your advice urgently. Thanks

    Dear Sir,

    This is Imran Khan from Pakistan and I heard much about you and now I am writing with confidence that my all points will clear after your cooperation.

    I applied for a student visa and got refused and then I won the appeal in last December 2009 and recieved my call letter from embassy on 22-03-2010 that I can submit my passport but I could not submit my passport because of following reasons:
    My course was Msc/PGD in Information Technology with E-Business at the time of my application for visa into embassy in 2009 but my college and not any other college in UK is now offering this course till today so what I do now???
    Actually the awarding body of aforementioned course was my college but after the launching of point based system, colleges are not allowed to award any degrees/Diplomas except awarding bodies organized by UKBA. Is is not my fault so what I do now???
    Embassy said I cannot change the course.
    Please clear me these points as soon as possible so that I be able to take further steps before any further delays.

    With Best Regards,
    Imran Khan

    Your case will be decided ‘on papers’ (based on whatever you send to the AIT) before the Judge unless you or your Fiance attend the hearing or have representation in court.

    I am correcting the second line in my first paragraph that the Home office should inform the employers to be patient because it is not the students fault not to get their visas back on time and also that the Home office is based in the UK but not abroad.

    There must be clear information to the employers how to deal with students waiting for the renewal for their visas.

    Please give me any idea or any web info that indicates we are allowed to work whilst waiting for our visas so that next time when i renew, i have a solid information or refference.

    jkemasylv@yahoo.com'Jenny Kadhila says :


    Why is the home office keeping student visa extension too long, and students are now being threatened by employers that they will stop them working?

    I think the home office need to inform the employers to be patient because it is not the students fault and the Home office is in the UK abroad. The home office should provide a page of information that if a student is waiting for their visa to be renewed they can still work.

    The other thing is that some times a student want to travel or visit your family but you cant, some of us are single mothers and have not seen our families for 3 to 4 years especially our kids please the Home office must have a heart to feel for us and give us a chance to visit or invite our families whilst waiting for our visas. This is just like u are in prison, how can i even study if i dont see my family? it is hard and affects our performance please the Home office should do something about this because it is not fair. Even prisoners are allowed to see their loved ones.

    Dear friends,
    I read through and really understood that immigration rules are becoming more complex.
    Instead of the British authorities to work on internal control modalities to manage and control migration, they are fight each other and under such circumstances the ECO have all become wounded leopards read to kill you psychologically. They are not real professionals. They are like wild animals that are programmed to reap people’s money.

    Objective judgement is not part of their culture but who is to blame….the government of course. It’s rather unfortunate but that Island is sinking and even not already cursed, would be a cursed Island soon and everything on it will be cursed. They only give visas to corrupt people like themselves. How can you determine who is genuine or not. It is absolutely rediculous. Tier 4….rubbish!
    Never trust them, would be my professional advice but if you want to apply safely go through a British legal firm.ONLY BRITISH TO BRITISH CAN UNDERSTAND THE BRITISH. NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW WHAT THEY HAVE SIGNED UNDER THE TABLE. BUT any one risking to apply, thinking they have every thing that is put on paper does not work. Even you can be refused for not crossing you ‘t’ or putting a dot above your eye. Then you have the opportunity to appeal.By the time the decision is taken you find out was it really necessary to go all through this. Anyway experience is a good teach though a bad master. Good luck to all future applicants. Nevertheless just make such you go through an acknowledged migration lawyer, otherwise you can get a heavy blow between the eyes. Cheers…dessy boy…British

    Hi All,

    All applicants be aware of the UK Boarder Agency!!!!. They are abusing their office. Even if you provide them with all required information, they still love to see you refused. They are making fun out of people and creating avenues for other sources of income creation. Its a game lottery. One will only understand by experience. Hear say is not as effective as becoming a victim of UK visa refusal.

    Most refusals are not based on facts but rather feelings.

    My advice, is that the UK is not progressing. Educational standards are falling, the system is corrupt and chaotic. Only idiots still believe that the UK is still like before. It is no more. Once you get in after going through hell, then you realize it is all not worthy.

But upon application for a visa in his home country our employee made a mistake on his form and it was rejected. After a lengthy appeal process we finally won our appeal by a senior immigration judge. we were overjoyed as you can imagine. But now the embassy want a new work permit because they say our permit has expired!! Will i be able to get a re print, am I in time? and if so what is the way of contacting that department? Many Thanks for listening.

    Hi. Our visit visa was recently refused. we appealed and it turns out that the ECO has withdrawn his refusal. They have asked for the passports and tentative dates to visit. Can the ECO deny a visa again when we send our passports? do we have to send any more documents with the passport such as an airticket etc? Also, we had paid the visa fees in full (for a 5 yr multiple entry visa) – can the ECO give a shorter duration visa? We already had a 6 months visa stamped last year and travelled on it too. How long do they take for granting a visa
