The UK Immigration rules are changing very fast, and if there is any reasons why either you or any of your friends and family overstayed in the UK but now wish to regularize your stay, it is the worth making an application to the UK Border Agency immediately, and in any case before the 1st October 2012.
We have received credible information that from 1 October 2012 if you have overstayed your leave by more than 28 days any application for further leave will be refused. This change in the Immigration Rules will affect applicants applying for further leave under:
- the points-based system;
- all working and student routes;
- visiting routes;
- long residency routes;
- discharged HM Forces;
- UK ancestry routes
This change is in line with the new immigration rules coming into effect for the family migration route from 9 July 2012.
If you have limited leave to remain you must ensure you apply to extend your leave, if needed, in time. If you wish to remain in the UK after the 28 day period you should leave the UK and reapply for a visa. Unfortunately any overstay in the UK will definitely lead to a ban on returning back. As we are aware of the sensitivity and the fact that there could be reasons beyond your powers that rendered you or your friends / Family to overstay, we wish to represent your application with the UKBA before the changes takes effect.
Please make contact with us at your very earliest convenience.
Remember changes coming on the 9th July 2012 includes:
1.Visit Visa will not be allowed to appeal
2.Anyone earning below £18,000 may not be allowed to sponsor someone to the UK
