OTS Case Study: Immigration Tribunal Appeal – Citizen of Philippines
Client A was a Pilipino national who had made an application as a Tier 1 entrepreneur through previous representatives. He had been refused a Tier 1 (entrepreneur) visa and instructed our firm to assist in challenging the refusal at the Immigration Tribunal Appeal. Miss Teni Shahiean of OTS Solicitors assisted our client to prepare for the appeal. Prior to his appeal hearing Client A had been offered a job in the UK by an employer with the required Sponsorship Licence. We assisted our client to obtain a certificate of sponsorship in time from the employer and then withdrew the appeal and submitted a fresh Tier 2 (General) application meaning that they were still within the 28 day grace period allowed after their leave to remain expired. With the help of our Immigration team Client A was granted his Tier 2 (General visa) straight away without the need to appeal his initial refusal. Our client achieved the best outcome in his Immigration case and started his Employment thereafter successfully developing his career and life in the UK.
