OTS Case Study: Entry Clearance Application – Citizen of Thailand
Client A approach Teni Shahiean of OTS Solicitors to represent her in an application for entry clearance from Thailand as the spouse of B. Shortly before this application, A had been refused entry clearance to the UK as a visitor where she had stated B to be a friend and not a spouse. This discrepancy could potentially have caused the application to be refused on credibility grounds, as A could be considered by the Entry Clearance office as not being truthful in her previous application and therefore her current application could also be considered as implausible. However, with the assistance of strong substantive evidence and detailed legal representation to support our client’s evidence, the Home Office granting our client her visa to join her partner in the UK without the Entry Clearance officer raising any issues on her application.
