Tier 5 – Youth Mobility Scheme

Tier 2-Intra Company Transfer

The Tier 2 Intra Company Transfer (ICT) route of the Points Based System is for multi-national company employees who are transferred to the UK based branch of their organisation. If you are an employee you may either be transferred on a long-term basis or be frequently sent to the UK on short-term visits. The company sponsoring you will need to issue you with a certificate of sponsorship and will need to ensure that the salary on offer and your qualifications will enable you to satisfy the immigration rules.

Our expert team of lawyers can assist you with the preparation of your Tier 2 ICT visa application and ensure that you meet with all the requirements of the relevant Immigration Rules. We will ensure that all key points are substantiated with documentary evidence, thereby leading to a successful application and avoiding the unnecessary expense of resubmitting your Tier 2 intra company transfer visa application to the Home Office.

  • Long-term staff ICT visa – established employees who are being transferred to the UK for 12 months or more in respect of a skilled job that could not be carried out by a new recruit from the resident workforce
  • Graduate trainee ICT visa – new graduates who need to come to the UK as part of a structured training programme which clearly defines progression towards a managerial or specialist role
  • Skills transfer ICT visa – overseas employees who are being transferred to the UK branch in a graduate occupation to learn the skills and knowledge they will need to perform their job overseas or to impart their skills to the UK workforce.

Applicants may, after 5 years, apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (Permanent Residency).

However, they will still be able to demonstrate a viable business plan and to provide adequate funds to support themselves and any dependents until the business begins to make a profit.

Switching to a Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa

You can switch to a Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa if you already have permission to stay in the UK under a different immigration category. For example, if you have permission to stay under another Tier 1 Visa or a Tier 2 or Tier 4 Visa you can switch to a Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa. You also have the option to switch if you are a student, nurse, postgraduate doctor or dentist, self-employed lawyer, writer, composer, artist, innovator or investor.

Sponsor Licences for Education Providers

Education providers wishing to enrol overseas students from outside the EEA are required to ‘sponsor’ them under Tier 4 of the Points Based System. Education providers will need to obtain tier 4 sponsor licences from the Home Office.

How we can guide you to obtain tier 4 sponsor licences?

The rules on obtaining sponsorship tier 4 sponsor licences can be complicated and our legal team is on hand to assist you with obtaining a licence. The concept of sponsorship in relation to Tier 4 provides evidence that the student will study for an approved qualification and places duties on education providers that it must abide by.

Obtaining Tier 4 Sponsor Licence

As a Tier 4 Sponsor you must meet the standards set for Highly Trusted Sponsors (HTS) and once you have met this standard, the Home Office will give you an A-rating/B-rating for 12 months. You must then apply for HTS status no later than 12 months from the date that you were granted your licence. The tier 4 sponsor licence will be valid for four years and if you wish to continue to be a sponsor, you must renew the licence.

Assigning a Certificate of Sponsorship (CAS)

Once you have a Tier 4 sponsor licence, you will be able to assign a CAS to students wishing to come to the UK to study. The CAS is valid for six months, and if the prospective student does not use the CAS, it will automatically become invalid; in this case, the CAS must be re-issued. As a licensed sponsor, you will need to comply with your duties which include informing the Home Office of students who were granted leave but failed to enrol and students who are continuously absent for significant periods of time.

Our Legal Services for tier 4 sponsor licence

  • Advise education providers on the procedure for applying for a tier 4 sponsor licence;
  • Act as the Key Contact or Level 1 User or Level 2 User of the company;

Naturalisation

Once you have completed five years of lawful residence in the UK and you have held Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) for at least one year, you can apply for naturalisation as a British Citizen. If you are married to a British Citizen, you can apply for British citizenship as soon as you have completed three years residence in the UK and you have ILR. If successful, it will mean you will no longer be subject to immigration control and you would be free to live and work not only in the UK but anywhere in the EEA.

How we can help with your naturalisation process?

We can help with your naturalisation application and queries. Our expert team of lawyers can assist you with the preparation of your British citizenship application and ensure that you meet with all the requirements of the relevant Immigration Rules, we will ensure that all key points are substantiated with documentary evidence thereby leading to a successful application and avoiding unnecessary expense of resubmitting your application to the Home Office.

What is naturalisation?

Naturalisation is the legal act or process by which a non-citizen in a country may acquire citizenship or nationality of that country. It may be done by a statute, without any effort on the part of the individual, or it may involve an application and approval by legal authorities.

What is British naturalisation?

British naturalisation is the process by which you can apply for British citizenship. For some countries you are not allowed to hold 2 nationalities so it is worth checking before you commence your application that you are eligible and what is likely impact of your current right to nationality of applying to become British.

The rules leading eligibility for British citizenship and for the application process are strict and vary depending on the circumstances of your application.

 

Applying for British citizenship

In order to apply for British citizenship, you must have had Indefinite Leave to Remain for at least 12 months. The only exception is EEA citizens and their family members. Upon five years continuous residence in the UK ending on or after 30 April 2006, EEA citizens who have continuously exercised ‘treaty rights’ (as a worker, self-employed person, student, self-sufficient person or a job seeker) and their family members automatically acquire permanent residence status.

Once EEA citizens and their family members have had permanent residence status for a period of at least 12 months, they are entitled to apply to naturalise as a British citizen.

Qualifying Criteria for British Citizenship

There are a number of requirements that one has to fulfil in order to make a successful application for British citizenship:

  • Minimum age of 18;
  • Sound mind;
  • The intention of having your home in the UK;
  • Sufficient knowledge of English Language;
  • Sufficient knowledge of life in the UK;
  • Good character;
  • Residence requirements; and
  • References.

 

What documents do you need to apply for British citizenship?

If you are applying for British citizenship as a spouse, you will need the following documents:

  • A passed Life in the UK test
  • Evidence of competence in English (qualification or British degree certificate)
  • Passport or travel documents which cover the last three years
  • (If your passport does not cover the past three years) you need to show sufficient evidence of living in the UK, such as study records, P60’s, wage slips, benefit letters
  • Marriage or civil partnership certificate
  • Completed application form (AN)

If you are applying to become a British citizen through a different route, you will need the same documents. However, you will need to prove you have spent the last five years as a resident in the UK rather than three.

What are the English language requirements for citizenship?

To meet the British citizenship requirements, you need to show you are competitive in English. You can do this with either:

  • a degree qualification which was taught or research in English
  • an English test qualification of a minimum of ‘C2’

Not every nationality of the person needs to demonstrate that they meet English language requirements to become a citizen. For example, if your first language is English, you do not need to pass a test.

 

There are other circumstances in which you will not need to pass the English test in order to meet the British citizenship requirements. These are:

  • If you are aged 65 or older when you submit your application
  • If you are not in the right physical or mental condition to sit the test
  • Exceptional compassionate circumstances

How long does it take to get a British citizenship?

The British citizenship application process usually takes around three months. However, this is the top estimate. Citizenship applications take significantly longer than many other visa applications because it is a far more complex procedure. When you become a British citizen, you are free from all immigration boundaries and gain full rights in the UK. As a result, UKVI is particularly cautious with which applications they choose to accept.

 

Naturalisation certificates

Naturalisation certificates are issued to all people who are granted British citizenship through naturalisation.

Usually, naturalisation certificates contain:

  • full name
  • residence/address of the applicant
  • birthplace
  • age/date of birth
  • parents’ names
  • name of spouse (if married)
  • occupation
  • children with their names and ages (if still of dependent age)

Human Rights Application

If you have had lodged an unsuccessful application to enter or to remain in the UK, you can appeal against this decision under the ambit of the Human Rights Act 1998, providing you can meet a certain criterion.

An application made under this Act is called a Discretionary Leave application. An application of this kind is made outside the ambit of the immigration rules and is based on exceptional, compassionate and compelling circumstances. In order to make a successful application, you will need to satisfy the following criteria:

  • The applicant must have resided continuously in the UK for at least 20 years; or
  • The applicant must be  under the age of 18 years of age and have resided continuously in the UK for at least seven years; or
  • The applicant must be aged 18 years or above but under 25 years and have spent at least half of their life residing continuously in the UK; or
  • The applicant must be aged 18 years or above and have resided continuously in the UK for less than 20 years and have no social, cultural or family ties with their country of origin.

How we can help with your Human Rights application?

Providing you can meet with the above criteria we can assist with your Human Rights application and queries. Our expert team of lawyers can assist you with the preparation of your application and ensure that you meet with all the requirements of the relevant Immigration Rules, we will ensure that all key points are substantiated with documentary evidence thereby leading to a successful Human rights application and avoiding unnecessary expense of resubmitting your application to the Home Office.

Human Rights Act

The European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) was affected in the UK by the Human Rights Act 1998. This has opened up the number of options available to an applicant to stay in the UK, as it has enshrined and extended the basis upon which an individual could be allowed to remain in the UK for protection and humanitarian reasons.

The key area of human rights in this area to consider can be found in Article 3 of the Human Rights Act 1998. Prohibiting the use of torture, it states that “No one shall be subjected to torture or to inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.” If you have a genuine fear that you will be exposed to torture, inhumane or degrading treatment or punishment and you are being deported to your home country, you can utilise this right and avoid removal from the UK.

Article 8 of the Human Rights Act 1998 enshrines the Right to respect for private and family life, it stipulates that  “there shall be no interference by a public authority with the exercise of this right except such as is in accordance with the law and is necessary in a democratic society in the interests of national security, public safety or the economic well-being of the country, for the prevention of disorder or crime, for the protection of health or morals, or for the protection of the rights and freedoms of others.” You can rely on Article 8 if you can show that you will face serious and unjustified interference with your family or private life following your removal from the UK. However broad the consideration for private life may be, the right to pursue a business without undue interference from state authorities is still retained.

As a consequence of the aforementioned legislation, a vast amount of case law has developed in which rights are discussed and substantiated. Asylum and Human rights are very complex areas of law, to make a successful application it is imperative to seek advice from an experienced, professional legal adviser, such as HS Legal.

We have a team of experts specialising in all aspects of Asylum and Human Rights, who would be able to guide you through the relevant legislation and case law and devise a strategy which will lead you to a successful outcome.

If you are already in the UK, you need to apply to the Home Office for asylum as soon as practicable. The home office endeavours to deal with such applications expediently and you may be detained whilst this is processed. You will also have to endure a lengthy interview in which you will have to explain the basis of your claim.

Our trained immigration lawyers would be able to guide you this process and devise a strategy which will facilitate a successful outcome.

A vast amount of cases are refused at the initial application stage. You do have the right to appeal, but you will have to adhere to complex rules and guidelines. If you do not appeal in time, you may lose the right to appeal.

We have a team of in-house experts specialising in all types of Human Rights Applications, they will assess your case and advise you on the best strategy to pursue. You will also be made aware of any pitfalls your case may incur.

Qualifying criteria for a Human Rights application:

To meet the requirements on the grounds of Human Rights application:

  • You must be unable to go back to your country of origin as there is a genuine risk that you will be exposed to torture, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.

The following are Human Rights and freedoms that are included:

  • The right to liberty and security
  • The right to no punishment without law
  • The right to the fair trial
  • The right to respect private and family life
  • The right to marry
  • The right to a remedy of human rights abuses
  • Freedom of thought, conscience and religion
  • Freedom of expression
  • Prohibition of discrimination
  • Freedom of assembly and association
  • Prohibition of torture
  • Prohibition of slavery and forced labour
  • Prohibition of the abuse of rights

What we can do for you to ensure your Human Rights case is successful

The law in this area changes and develops frequently, with a vast array of case law. Our legal experts will guide you through the complex minefield of case law and legislation. The success of your case will depend on how well your case is argued, the type of strategy adopted and the manner in which case law is applied to your circumstances.

In addition, we will do the following:

  • Conduct a detailed assessment of your personal circumstances to ensure this is the right course for you. If so then identify which category is applicable to your matter.
  • We can ensure that we have the correct documents to strengthen and support your application.
