OTS Major Success In Judicial Review and UK Entrepreneur Visa

Solicitor – Teni Shahiean
– CEO and Founder of OTS Solicitor, UK Immigration law Specialist

Teni's client is an Iranian national who came to OTS after his Tier 1 (entrepreneur) Visa was refused twice following the applications being made by another immigration law firm.  Our client was not happy with the service he received from his previous immigration solicitor and felt that after talking to Teni and Maryem, he would receive the best service available from OTS Solicitors.

UK Visas & immigration first refused our client because they believed that he was not a director of a company.  The second time he was refused was because the department claimed he had not properly invested the required £200,000.

How we helped

Teni began by investigating the first two initial refusals.  She found that UK Visa & Migration had not considered our client’s Certificate of Directorship and had ignored invoices that showed he had invested in his company in a way that is required by the immigration Rules. 

We have submitted a Pre-Action Protocol on our client’s behalf, alerting the Home Office that we will be challenging the decision via judicial review. Teni and her team are currently negotiating with the Home Office to try and reach an early settlement.

Follow-up Support

We will continue to work with our client after his Tier 1 (entrepreneur) Visa is approved; assisting him by ensuring he understands the residency requirements for applying for Indefinite Leave to Remain. We will also work with him and his staff to ensure his business is continuing to be compliant with UK immigration laws and policies.
