Our team of expert solicitors received some delightful news over the weekend that a client (the Applicant) had been granted Entry Clearance into the UK as a Tier 2 Dependent. The Applicant had initially planned to travel to the UK with his Fiancé who had been granted a Tier 2 (Intra Company Transfer) Long Term visa. However, this was not possible, as his initial application had been refused. In our initial consultation, we discovered that the Applicant submitted his initial application without the proper guidance and as a result his application was refused. Our solicitors were able to prepare an exceptional application and eliminate any concerns, resulting in a successful application.
The case for Entry Clearance as Tier 2 Dependent
The Applicant was a USA national residing with his Fiancé in the USA. The Applicant had initially planned to travel to the UK with his partner who had been granted Entry Clearance to the UK on a Tier 2 (Intra-Company Transfer) Long Term visa. The Applicant’s initial application as a Tier 2 Dependent had been refused, as the Home Office was not satisfied that the couple had been in a relationship akin to marriage for a period of over two years.
In our initial consultation, we addressed the issues surrounding the Applicant’s previous refusal. It was evident that the couple had been living in a relationship akin to marriage and had the documentary evidence to support this. After speaking to our expert solicitors, the Applicant was reassured that our solicitors often assisted clients in similar situations to his. The Applicant instructed us to prepare and assist with the submission of his application. The Applicant also informed us that he was going to use the Visa Priority Service, which is generally used in clear-cut applications where there are no potential issues.
