The past year has been very eventful in all aspects, with Brexit in particular being in the centre of attention. As a consequence, there has been a very large number of developments and we expect even more change to come in the immediate future. From immigration law prospective, this does not only concern individuals, but also most businesses in the UK -something that the team at Edmans & Co has been able to successfully advise and assist its clients with to date and this award represents the recognition that the team has received for the hard work and dedication.
In a very unexpected turn of events, the government decided to reverse its decision for the fivefold increase of the appeal fees. The increase was meant to lead to a steep reduction in the number of appeals bought forward by unsuccessful applicants. Thus, applicants who may have been unfairly refused and could have been successful at appeal would be deterred from appealing due to it simply being unaffordable, which raises important issue of potentially restricting access to justice. However, following major opposition to the increased fees in public consultation, the government abandoned the increases and the fees will in due course revert back to the old rates and those applicants who duly paid the astounding increased fees in the few weeks of their operation, will be reimbursed.
It has so far been a turbulent year for the UK and in particular UK Immigration. The country quite unexpectedly voted to leave the EU in the “Brexit” referendum and now aims to serve the Article 50 notice on the European Union by March 2017. However, the whole process is marred with various legal challenges from pro-EU groups and it now looks unlikely that the notice will be given by March 2017, as originally planned. In the meantime, in November this year the government announced new version of the current EEA rules, that will come into force in February 2017.
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.
