Tier 1 Entrepreneur – were the funds invested correctly?

The Tier 1 Entrepreneur route is now closed to new applicants but those already in the system will still be able to apply for extension or settlement, so it will be with us for a few years to come. And, not for the first time, a genuine and well-meaning entrepreneur has fallen foul of the rules and requirements, as recently recorded by the Court of Appeal in a surprising case called “Sajjad”. Mr Sajjad, a Pakistani national, ran a restaurant business as

Primary carers of British citizens – big change in the rules?

Some years the European Court of Justice (the “ECJ” – the supreme court for EU law) passed a judgement called “Zambrano”. This case is often described as a “landmark” decision, and indeed it was. What happened was that a husband and wife, who were Columbian nationals, were living in Belgium but they did not hold regular immigration/employment status. But they had children who had been born in Belgium and, under Belgian law, the children held Belgian nationality. By the court’s decision the

The UK innovator visa: innovative and scalable

At the end of March 2019, the UK government launched its new innovator visa for overseas entrepreneurs and closed the Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) category to new applicants.

Revocation of indefinite leave to remain – res judicata?

A case heard recently in the Court of Appeal called “Ullah” raised some interesting issues. Mr Ullah is a Pakstani national. He had entered the UK illegally in 1996 and eventually acquired indefinite leave to remain under the old (no longer existing) 14-year rule, which enabled irregular migrants to achieve permanent status after that period had passed. Importantly, his initial application to the Home Office had been refused, but he had been successful on appeal to the Immigration Tribunal. This was in 2012

Is this goodbye to ‘no fault evictions’?

Are you a private landlord or private tenant in England? If so you will no doubt be interested to know that the Government has launched a consultation exercise on “no-fault evictions” in England.
