November the Home Office announced new Statement of Changes, making a number of changes to the Tier 2 and Tier 4 categories, changes to the English language requirement to migrants of a 5 year family route and quite significantly, abolition of 28 day grace period for making out of time applications. Some of the changes were forthcoming for quite some time, in particular changes to Tier 2 category and increase of English language requirement to level A2 for family immigration application under 5 year route, we covered both comprehensively in our previous articles in May and August respectively.
The government has now confirmed, the appeal fees are increasing from 10th October 2016. This news comes after months of speculation and Government consultations.
Is it all doom and gloom from here on in? Some would say yes. Others would say the fee increases could improve the time it takes for appeals to be heard. Whatever your take can be on this, the fee increases are massive and will have a serious influence many applicants, who will now be priced out of getting access to a fair hearing.
Following the announcement by the former Prime Minister, David Cameron, on 18th January 2016 that family route migrants will face a new stricter English language tests when they apply to extend their stay in the UK, the Home Office is due to implement this change from October 2016, when it will increase the English language requirement for non-EEA national partners and parents from A1 CEFR to A2 CEFR.
The results of the referendum are in and UK has voted to leave the EU with 52% majority. David Cameron has pledged to resign from his post as a prime minister in October this year, in time for the Conservative Party conference. Many people are confused as to the immediate repercussions of the result on the EU nationals living in the UK.
In a nutshell, there will not be any immediate changes as a consequence of the referendum vote, at least until October this year.
